Derreck by Ravinss Derreck by Ravinss
Had the opportunity to work with Derreck not too long ago.
Took some pictures of him and someone else that I might upload sometime. I was actually just testing the light on him. :)

Lit with a Nikon SB28 and SB80DX on either side of the subject, in white umbrellas, triggered by radio triggers. Thank you, Strobist.

Convert to jpg from RAW after applying a black and white conversion action I got from Martin Fuchs' page when it was up and running.


Edit - Lightened it slightly.

Did a great job bringing out the facial hair, here. I like the accent.

i don't think it's too dark (or even was). i think the dark makes it appealing, at least, for me it did. its a nice portrait :clap:

Damn it... I really shouldn't question my judgment so easily. :)
I've gotten some other feed back too that said I should have left it darker.

besides, it's your work and the feedback doesn't matter, or at least shouldn't matter. if you like it a specific way, then it's the way it should be. if i listened to feedback i wouldn't get very far because people will always differ... so you need to make your art yours.

you're right... on a second look it was a little too dark, so I lightened it slightly. It's still darker than what might be considered ';proper' exposure, but I wanted it a little underexposed.
Thanks for your input.
