American astronaut Col. Alfred Merrill Worden

Had the chance to take Al Worden's portrait. Al Worden is an American astronaut and engineer who was the Command Module Pilot for the Apollo 15 lunar mission in 1971! He is known as America's First Astronaut to perform a Deep Space EVA on the return from the moon aboard Apollo 15. This image was created using two Flashpoint XPLOR 600 that were placed about 15 feet away from the subject due to location limitations. What is really cool is that this portrait was taken under space shuttle Atlantis at the Kennedy Space Center.
