Amazing...I did a very similar type shot of my now ex-husband, but as he is now my ex, he won't let me use the shot for anything anymore....Have to admit, yours IS better than mine though...

This is stunning

I love your portrait you took,please tell me what lens you used for this shot,it's perfect, and when did you make it,at night,or in the daytime?My question is,for me if I an take a shoot as beautiful as yours with my kit lenses 18-55mm,but I don't think so.Thank you.

Superb. Love the processing and lighting, which looks like daylight - judging by the catchlights.

What a perfect example of the nitty gritty and such a variety of textures too Craig. Congratulations on being a finalist.

Behind The Lens

Location
At Home, It's a selfie!
Time
Late afternoon
Lighting
Taken in a room with just window light
Equipment
Nikon D90 1/20sec f4.5 iso 500. Camera on tripod, tethered to my computer using lightroom. No flash
Inspiration
Was looking for some interesting portraits for competition entries, Thought I looked quite interesting when i've just got back from work and haven't shaved!!
Editing
Converted to mono in silver efex pro. Processed in cs4 using layer masks so i could darken and lighten certain areas. Some selectif sharpening.
In my camera bag
Fujifilm x20 and iphone5
Feedback
It's quite easy all you need is the equipment a tripod and yourself! experiment with different lighting effects, I seldom use flash relying more on window lights or natural lighting.
