Here are couple of the images from the portrait session with my friend Chuck.
Of course, we had to mess around and do one with a crazy facial expression as well. But we also did the shot he wanted.
Lighting setup was speedlite key on the left with octagon softbox, speedlite fill on the right with smaller square softbox, back/rim light on the right was lit using speedlite with barndoors, and background was bare speedlite.
Camera is Nikon D4. Lens is Nikon 80-200 2.8 Shot at approx. 135mm.
Basic editing in Lightroom included crop, exposure, slight skin correction, and BW conversion (for the BW image).
