Bow Tie and All

An assignment, a photo created. The professor said come back next week with a portrait in hand of an “everyday hero.” After some ruminating on the subway home, I figured this dear fellow fit the ticket. Mentor, educator, business savvy sunna’o gun.

At last the self portrait lighting sessions have paid off. This illuminous setup was a direct descendant from some testing/practice setups I’ve been fiddling with as of late. Strobes, reflectors, angles and all. Harsh and heroic.

I’ll need another month of Photoshop learnings before I can figure out how to pull the lens flare out of him. Hexagonal forehead blue at top left and some green on the chin. I’ll figure it out.

Thanks young man.
