Selfie

By Brianmdoucette      
Playing with lighting, as always. Using the only available model (Me!), even the dog wouldn't sit still long enough. using 2 600 ExRt Speedlights - Camera right front, snoot with grid to control the light, and from behind the subject shooting forward, left of camera, another 600 ExRt gelled red shot through a 36" octa softbox 4:1 lighting ratio.

Very good set up of lighting. I like the red gel light. You look like a cowboy from the old days.

Well... I am from the 'old days', coming up on 61... The hat is my water proof canvas hat, that I wear when it is pouring rain outside... I think I achieved the lighting effect that I was looking for,
Thanks for commenting , B...

Very good portrait, detailed to perfection.
I like the lighting arrangement and the result but I would also try a black and white version and a sepia. Yes just like these old days.

I have been doing so much black and white processing lately that I wanted to do a colour version to check my tones/white balance. I really liked how the colour version came out... I did do both sepia and B&W version.
