I really like this lighting, and the use of negative space. The colors of the subject's hair, including the beard, really help set this off.

Behind The Lens

Location
You're going to find this funny but it was In my living room.
Time
A lazy afternoon I decided to try this method with my kids.
Lighting
It took a few tries to get it just right but a mostly closed umbrella and a blanket did the job.
Equipment
A single speed light, a white umbrella and a blanket over the back of the umbrella to keep the light from leaking thru the umbrella.
Inspiration
I was looking at trying to learn a differnt style of photography from my norm. It made sense to limit the light to only the subject while limiting the apature and exposure. This was shot next to a white wall and a bit tricky but I think it came out okay for my first attempt at this method.
Editing
None on this picture.
In my camera bag
The basics.
Feedback
Stay inspired and keep shooting!
