Great Shot! I like the expression you caught - what an unusual expression for this pose! (Shouldn't he be grunting? Ha!) The contrasting colors and the offset really grab me. I like it! Great job. #222049

I am totally wondering how you got this shot, with the dark background and everything. It's awesome! This guy looks so much like someone we know, is he one of the Humphreys? #1152456

Superb image, Josh. You've set this one up beautifully. #1152768

Thanks y'all. This isn't a really hard shot to get. I set up two lights. The main light (200 w/s) was to my right about the 10 o'clock position to him set at f/5.6 for ISO 200 that was on a small softbox. The other light was at his 3 o'clock position and bare bulb (also 200w/s) set at f/2.8. That bare bulb gave that nice cool sharp rim lighting.
The reason why the background is so dark is because the wall is about 50 feet away and he is ten feet off the ground. #1154608
