This gentleman requested "lost edges." He's a painter and preferred that I lose detail in shadows whenever possible. He will use this photograph as the source for a painting. Posted with permission. Photograph is mine, he agreed to let me share his image.

We had a long discussion about how it would be important in photography to have fill and perhaps a rim light to soften shadows and bring definition to the shadow side of the portrait. He said just the opposite was expected in his painting...

I've posted a before/after and 100% crop of the face so you can offer comment on the post processing, if you are so inclined.

Thanks for looking.

I think the split lighting gives a very dramatic effect to this picture. He looks almost sinister with his expression. This is probably exactly what he was looking for. I have been thinking about doing some lighting with this effect.......maybe I will be inspired next time I do a shoot!
