This was a portfolio boosting shoot I did with fitness model Harold Duncan. I wanted to try some new things and get some material that stands out from the crowed. Directly beside my studio is a private UFC training facility. I traded with the owner so I could shoot in the space. I rented a Haze machine from the local production effects store. I also custom made a triangle light, kinda like a ring flash, but constant light and triangle. The rim lights were two Alien Bee 800's with 30 degree grids. I made fake sweat by mixing water and glycerine in a spray bottle. I got Harold to scream as loud as he could and flex his rippling muscles. And viola, thats how this shot was made. The question I get all the time on this photo is "is this a composite"? Its not, the background is real.
