Most people who rock climb can get some pretty rough hands.

Most people who weight train regularly can also get some tough hands. I do both. The other day someone saw my hands and said "Woah man, your hands are harsh!" I decided to take a picture.

This is what weight training 6 days a week, and rock climbing 3 days a week can do to your hands. Tape = blisters.

If a picture should tell a story, this one is telling a novel.

Simple yet dramatic. You need nothing more. Good photo.

Very nice shot, love the first one, the colour version is great too but the B&W is really dramatic and just full of awesome.

My only critique would be to have a little more..... Ahh who am I kidding, this is perfect, Great work!

B&W is the better version to me. It speaks a lot more without turning the viewer away. The color version looks like you're getting ready for a zombie party! The texture/detail is phenomenal

Thanks for the kind words everyone! Feels good to nail a shot for once :-p I posted SEVERAL edits here: https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1009590 put I posted the B+W one, and the original for comparison in this section because I felt the B+W was the best. There are sepia+other edits in that thread.

Got some PM's asking me how I did this. I set up my tripod with the 17-55 2.8IS lens, and the 580EXII mounted on it. Set the 580 to -2 power, and pulled out the bounce card, and pointed the flash at a 45 degree angle. I then had to look through the camera, and focus/compose the shot based on one of my hands. To do this, I stood behind the tripod and reached around to the front of the camera to focus/compose. Once I fired a few test shots, and figured out where to put my hands (without looking through the lens), I attached a remote cable, and chalked up my hands (for effect), and set the shutter to a 10 second delay. I set the camera on manual focus, and to f/11 with 200 iso. This was so the flash would only light up my hands, but not have enough power to light up the rest of the room.

Once I hit the remote, I shut off the one light I had on in the room, stuck my hands in front of the camera, and voila. It took about 15 tries of this to get my hands in the right spot -- I couldn't look through the camera because I had to stand so close to the tripod to reach my arms around, and get my hands in the right spot, AND I had all the lights off, so there was some guess work involved.

It's very very fun, especially if you like intense physical things, or are into the outdoors. Though, it can tear up your hands pretty good :cool:
