I originally had him backlit for one of my favorite shots, but I wanted something different. I wanted to use the sun as a bit of harsh fill that hopefully brought some contrast to his weathered skin and epic mustache. I then placed a large octabank to "short light" him. Processed in Capture One and Silver Effects for the BW conversion.
Camera: Mamiya 645 DF+ w/ Credo back
Lens: Mamiya 120 F4 Macro
Exif: ISO 50, F4, 1/320 (ish)
Wonderfully done...beautiful lighting...
Much appreciated. Thanks.
I am loving this shot so much. There is a dramatic feel to it plus that moustache is epic indeed.
