Mr. Hyde's Wild Night

By MichaelBilottaPhotography    
This is likely the final image generated from my recent shoot with Model Ed Barron. I had very few concrete ideas going into the shoot, but the one I was sure about was I wanted to play on human duality, and Jekyll and Hyde was a natural and fun starting point. Ed gave me great Hyde to play with, and after finishing the one image (about 12 back from this one) featuring the good doctor and his alter ego, it seemed no more was needed. I shot some solo Jekyll, and solo Mr. Hyde. The good doctor on his own is a bit of a bore, so I thought this "move poster" of Ed Hyde was a nice way to cap off this string of images from our shoot. Big thanks to Ed (Barron and Hyde) for giving me great material to work with!

This is an excellent action portrait. The earnest expression fits the chore of sectioning off the body. I really like the major agua green cast. Stern expression but a really nice fellow shows through. Good creative theatre. TG

dual personality well made out.. the expressions tell that clearly that its something which has taken over the goodness of the gentleman.. Really manic.

An informative pre-narrative Michael, which certainly puts us straight into this superbly well crafted piece, which I must say I am rather envious. Ed Baron, certainly knows how to work the camera, and in turn has generated a great feeling of mood and mystique, which is a great quality in any model/actor.

Superb composition and concept, and I love the way that the line of the arm kind of echoes the lines of the knife. But it's his eyes and the facial expression that draws me ... very effective Smile
I don't really know or see an easy way to respond to comments on this site, so I hope some of you get this - but thank you all for your input and comments!

Cracking shot !!!.....the underlying 'mood' is clear to see !!!!

I'm sure M&S sell a proper flexible butter-knife, for spreading your 'sarnies' ????????
