Dirty Back Alley, Osan City, Korea


In a few weeks I'll be shooting one of Korea's most decorated professional bodybuilders. "Mr. Suwon," who beats the snot out of me at the gym five days a week, has asked me to help create images for his new advertising packages.


You can't say no to a man with 24-inch biceps. You can't.


Since we'll be shooting some of his stuff in the studio in the gym, I wanted to test out a couple lighting setups. I don't mind how this turned out, but I'd likely add a touch of fill from overhead; a couple stops under the rim lights, and drop it out of a beauty dish. Gotta keep the mist, though!


I have a few other - how shall I say? - embarrassing efforts from my light tests in the park. I'll share them later. I didn't play around for too long, since it was freezing cold and I wasn't wearing a shirt by the end of this.
