Self Portrait Test

Just having fun in the studio today. While my computer turns out web pages from my shoot yesterday, thought I'd multi task and shoot a portrait of myself.

I placed a SB-800 strobe on a Justin Clamp and clamped it to the softbox frame to soften the effects of a small strobe. I used only one strobe and a Road Rags flag to prevent light striking the left edge of the background. This provided a nice dark area for my well lite face to contrast with.

The post processing was done in Lightroom, I selected Preset in the Develop mode called "Cyanotype"
