Spirit

By snezza69
This shot was taken from a lighting test shoot, using continuous lighting together with dtudio flash. Apart from the conversion to black and white, this shot was captured in camera and for me looks almost like an inner termoil shot, inspired by some of the imagery from the film "Jakobs ladder"

It's a good competent portrait and good mono processing. I like the technique, (also used on the Pet Shop Boys - Suburbia Single Cover!). Unfortuantely you have chopped off your hand, which is not always a good thing, but should really be included in the frame. Apart from that, a good image.

Andrew.

Thanks Andrew, you know I think the RAW file has the other hand in shot but when I cropped for composition, I think it was more visually appealing. I like you am not a fan of cropping parts of the body. Maybe I wanted to try a bolder crop. I will look back at the RAW and see.

Thanks.
