Just an hour to go... My last day on the job.
Early retirement; not my idea.
Doctor's orders. Heart condition.
This all came about from a conversation on another forum. Someone was asking how to achieve a Sin City style of look - lots of people mentioned actions and plugins, but nobody gave much thought to the lighting.
So, out with the boys yesterday, and when Ade and Matt finally got bored of posing me, I took my own turn behind the camera, and attempted to recreate the look - or something close to it.
Ade's sitting on a metal crash barrier. I've got an SB-800 on camera in commander mode providing some forward fill. There are another two speedlights behind Ade, 45 degrees either side and above, providing the main lighting.
Processed the RAW file & imported to Photoshop - did a quick 'n' dirty mono conversion, a bit of dodging and burning and an overlay layer with a slight red tone to complete the effect.
Was is successful? You decide...
