This shot of my husband inspired by the Dutch Masters took three days to create. On the first day I set up and tested my lighting. On the second day we shot, but I was unhappy with the results, so we went back to the studio on day 3. This was the final result lit with a beauty dish camera right with a foam core flag to create the narrowed light area on the face and a background light behind.
