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.
