Had a visitoday from two photography interested guys, and we had a kind of workshop where I showed how I set the lights when I shoot, and some stuff for retouching. One of them had to be the model and this image turned out rather nicely.
I used one hairlight ( a Sigma Super 500 flashgun, as it undiffused will create more than enough light for hair, despite its rather low power ), two cheap chinese strobes as backlights, and two strobes in front, in a clamshell position, the stronger on top. Umbrellas was used for the front ones.

You can even make men look good lol. Great job on the picture.


I just got my first pair of glasses that I didn't think I needed. I apologize to anybody in the past year that I said their pictures were out of focus lol.

Really like this shot! Looks very natural and "clean cut".

Wonderful!
The skin tones and process is outstanding

If i may ask, how were you able to achieve such perfect color balance/skin tones?

I may have used Hue & Saturation to get rid of some red, and added a slight yellow to the skin.Otherwise he is mostly dodged and burned to get rid of some wrinkels and to partially smooth the skin.

I like it, just wish his shirt wasn't cut off like that. Overall, good headshot. Most people don't even know what "headshot" actually means.

Nice lighting, though the giant black stripe growing out of the top of his head is unfortunate.
