Still More Self-Portraits

I am fine-tuning the lighting in the series. Digital B&W has a different “feel” to it over film. Here are my most recent efforts. Shot in PEF RAW mode, converted with PhotoShop CS2.

Two Bowens Bo-Lite heads, main light with 18″ softbox at 45° to subject 45° angle to create the triangle of light on the left eye. 36″ square silver reflector fill. Second head with silver honeycomb/barndoors as a keylight. Self-Portrait. Pentax *istD SMC FA-Pentax 50mm f:1.4. 1/60 sec @ f:16.

A similar shot, different angle.

Some tweaking to B&W.

About Darrell Larose

I am a highly motivated self confessed techno-geek. While rooted in traditional analog photography, I have embraced the new technologies in photography. I am just as comfortable under the dark cloth of a large-format view camera, as I am with a digital camera. I can produce award winning photographs within the darkroom, or from a digital-desktop. With 40 years of photography as a both hobby, and over 30 in the professional arena I have always produced. I am self-taught in the digital media, I have been a PhotoShop user since 1995 (version 2.5) I found the transition fairly seamless due to my long experience in labs. I have worked within various Government photo units, including the Forensic Photo Section of the RCMP, as well as various professional labs. I can easily converse with a police forensic photographer as I can with a wedding sports or commercial photographer. I have worked for several of Ottawa’s top photographers. I have worked at several pro labs. As well as many years in photo retail.
