Bob's a great model but a poor football

Portraits of Men
- Adding the Second Light

I added the backlight on the camera left of Bob.

I brought the light around the front just far enough that it was lighting the side of his nose, but not so far that it was lighting the cheek area.

It also glares off the forehead area... which is good.

I used F16 at 1 second on HP5+ on the Ebony 8x10. This is almost wide open on the 450mm F12 lens I own.

After processing the sheets I learned that my kids had been playing football with Bob and he wasn't sitting in the same spot as the first shot. Ruins the whole project so I'm going to start over in the morning.
