Captain Spaghetti Head

September 19, 2014

Model: Alex Pelton

Local owner of one of my favorite restaurants in town, the Bit & Spur. Next time you're visiting Zion, stop in and if you notice Alex behind the bar, tell him he looks good with spaghetti on his head :)

By the way, if you couldn't tell, the 'spaghetti' is really yarn...

I'm in complete agreement with what the others have shared. Great work! The lighting is terrific, and your candor with respect to your setup is certainly appreciated for those of trying to unravel the mysteries of lighting the shot. Amazing portraiture!
