This is an image I took for my HNC Portraiture unit. The theme behind this was from the Drop Dead clothing range and this was the inspiration behind this particular portrait.
I've used a high key background with a light on the background and a large soft box as frontal lighting. It has been edited in Photoshop by increasing the blacks in Levels to give more definition as it first appeared flat. The only drawback to this photo and what I would change if I were to re-shoot is to use less fake blood next time
