    Had dinner at a friends house last night and since he owed me for introducing him to his newly wedded wife I convinced him to pose for me. He just landed a job teaching college level history courses and knowing his great love for all things antique we went about shooting something that borrowed heavily from classic portraiture. I'm fairly pleased with how these turned out. I'm still learning tricks with off camera flash. I had the flash set high to the left while I held a large reflector bottom right and activated the camera via remote. Lens used was Canon FD 50mm 1.4. These are best described as "mock heroic", intentionally over-the-top in pose and feel.

    The images aren't showing as previews for some reason.

    btw these were shot in his backyard against a stand of fir trees. No doubt the neighbors were wondering what the crap we were doing out there and where all the flashes were coming from.

    Thank you, #2 is my personal favorite as well. So over-the-top serious.
