portrait of tomislav

Although we did some sessions several weeks ago, Tomislav decided to pose for me again, just so I could test my lightning setup. Nice guy for helping me out.

Lightning comes from a light panel as window light was way too soft. Normally for photography a light panel is not the best choice but for long exposure portraits it is great as a flash would totally ruin the effect I’m after. That said, reflecting is much tougher as the source is weaker, but this can be used to create nice shadows on the background. One could play hours with this :).

Despite an exposure of only two seconds, Tomislav was not able to sit still but I do like his portrait so I processed it.
