A theatrical image for my model friend Sarah-Jane's portfolio.

Lens:
Submitted: Monday, 23rd July, 2012 08:12 (GMT)
Taken: Wednesday, 6th June, 2012
Focal length: 85 mm
Shutter speed: 1/200 sec
Aperture: F6.3
ISO: 50
Notes: Sarah-Jane is shot in a studio against a seamless grey background. She's lit left and right by two alienbee strobes to provide a kicker light. She's also lit from the front just off camera right for fill. The background element is a local stately home often used as a wedding venue. The foreground element was a cheap halloween mask from a local fancy-dress shop. All layered in photoshop with effects brushes and colour balancing.
