This cowboy is a skilled leather worker and made all of the leather he's wearing (and the chaps you can't see).
The scene was pretty unique here. It's inside an old 1800's limestone farm house in the Flint Hills of Kansas. The light was horrendous outside so I put him in the shade where the light would wrap around a little bit from the windows. Originally I placed my light on the left so I could short light him (my preferred style), but I just couldn't get rid of the glare on the glasses. Yes, I could photoshop it later, but I didn't want to resort to that. So, I broad lighted him from the right with the Paul C Buff 47" Octabox feathered away from him. A white reflector was camera left, right off the frame, to fill in the shadows a bit.
I processed this in Capture One, worked in Photoshop a bit, then did a few rounds of Exposure 7 to color grade it.
