Behind The Lens

Location
This images was taken in the living room and the background was darkened.
Time
Doesn't really matter if it was in doors.
Lighting
2 flash guns at an angle on either side of the model...
Equipment
I used a nikon d200 and a 50mm nikon
Inspiration
We had an afternoon to come up with a mean looking image and to tie a scarf the model's nose and mouth seemed to be the way forward.
Editing
Yes quite a lot here. Used hdr software. Then darkened the background. Then put it through hdr again and used photoshop.
In my camera bag
I now have a d800, my trusted 50mm 300mm f4 and a flash.
Feedback
Trial by error here. Just make sure you do have good Light.
