I took this as part of a projeted on poker people. I have had to show use of diffrent lighting techniques.
This was taken in a very dark pub with the use of a small spot light with a tube to direct the light to one side of James.
I think this is quite a good effort at something diffrent.

Well he certainly sat still for the whole time!

Its a good shot in general. That post on the right though makes the shot look tilted, so you may need to use that as a vertical.

A little too much light on the face, - I dealt with it in the mod using highlight reduction, but a little less exposure would be in order.

A good effort,


regards

how on earth did you get him still that length of time? Did you nail him to the background in the name of Art? Wink

The reason this works is it gives a context and his expression is sublime - what a model - one can see at least three stories here:
The out of world ennui of the sitter
the pile of winnings
the 'Zen' like eye expression.

Against that backdrop, s*d the pole (although it'd be better if not there at all) - remember it's a photo not a painting where one can choose the elements to leave out.
Nuff said from an unartistic idiot,
(have just noticed commenters seem to 'sign' I guess that's polite so kind regards from b0b)
