My friend Bruce is a of a punk/folk musician & asked me if I could do a few promoshots for him. Fuck yeah I can. I actually ended up using the harsh light from my gridded 430 for my key light in this shot & the soft light from my Apollo as the rim. Worked out nicely and give the shot a bit of a different feel, I also got some nice flare on the left too… mmmmmm flare.
