Muyiwa, A portrait #2

Well not much to say on this one apart from the fact that this was somewhat complicated in terms of lighting. This was what I was referring to yesterday.

The Eye, you either have it OR you don't. Jide, don't get a big head but you is one fantastic photographer.

Seems a bit contrived to me but I like the mood created by the lighting
Jide Alakija: Thanks Stan.

You know what, I also thought I'd seen this same image before. But I guess thats one the perks of being friends with you on Facebook. Howdy. I really like this image. So "Professional" - lol..
Splendid picture, i love it.
just for the sake saying something different (trust me i'd've oohed and aahed if i was the first to view this), i'll comment on his apparently lifted right foot which has been replaced by it's shadow...
aaaagh don't mind me it's a smashing shot, full stop!
So how did you achieve the lighting, were they studio lights or theatre lights? Oh yeah like the result too.
