Day 24

Day 24

Originally uploaded by ShawnGrimes

Still playing with my new lights and I also played with a few new (to me) Photoshop techniques. This shot obviously used one light to my side that lit up only the left side of my face, leaving the right side in the dark. I then used a multiply layer to create the darkened edges and a screen layer to lighten up the left side of the face even more for more contrast.

This is a “just for giggles” shot. This composition has been done numerous times in much better ways by other photographers. If I did it again, I would let a little more light onto the right side and try to accentuate the lines of the face with the side lighting more. But that is what Day 24 is for.
