Hello my friends!

I wanted to share this photographs I took last saturday.
It was a James Bond Themed Fashion Shoot for a male pageant.

Let me know what you think!

It looks like a cool shot - the only nit pick i would have would be that I find it a bit distracting with the blown out area on the hair at the 2 o'clock position. Good shot though.

Cool theme, good lighting. Do you mind sharing the lighting set up?

Sorry for the big bump.

Will;

1. Small Softbox with a Canon 430exII Just left of the frame.
2. Bare Alien Bee 400 on the boom on the top right as a rim/hair light.
3. Bare Alien Bee 800 pointing at the left side of the background.

I think this was shot at F2.8 with the 85mm 1.8 on my 5D2

Nice shot. The finger on the trigger makes it look like he doesn't know how to handle a gun. (Usually put a finger on the trigger only when about to shoot.)

The light is nice and it does have a slick look to it

That's the typical standard for photo shoots involving guns, but because this is a James Bond themed shoot, the pose kind of makes it necessary..007 is known for that type of photo, as you can see here (external link) and here (external link). :D

Add a hottie behind him holding a martini and you'll be set.
Nice pic. I don't like the finger in the trigger either but I am use to training others not to have an ND

Cool photos!

Here are my thoughts:
1) The white shirt at the cuff should be ironed properly. I don't know if you had any control over that.
2) I think the photo can use some cropping at the bottom.
3) I don't like it that his left hand's chopped off.

Minor things, but I think it would improve the photo. Great photo overall though!

For almost all photos, I feel it is way wrong with the finger on the trigger.

But it would be wrong with a Bond photo with the finger straight ahead. I don't think I have seen any Bond movie or original Bond photo where he doesn't have the finger on the trigger.

^ Yeah, I think that proper trigger discipline in a shot like this wouldn't look right.
