Awesome photograph

Behind The Lens

Location
My studio
Time
evening shoot
Lighting
One soft-box
Equipment
Canon 7D 60 mm 1/1 Macro
Inspiration
Viewbug was the ispuration for this image. I was looking at the hall of fame photos and ran across this great portrait of a man with a long red beard. I want to to my best to recreate the image with my own twist. I got on the phone and dialed up one of the local bikers. We had a great time doing the shoot. I was happy to be able to capture his personality.
Editing
Light room I pumped up the contrast added some red and made it a black and white.
In my camera bag
7D 10-17mm 70-200mm 60 mm a couple flashes
Feedback
Find a good subject. Lots of stories in this face.
