First image post... Yeah!

I shot this self portrait last week while trying to figure out a modified lighting set up for an assignment for the German magazine Der Spiegel... In times of digital cameras and low budgets I find this a very good way of figuring out what works and what doesn't so much in way of lighting someone: Setting up the lights and taking an image of myself as a stand in... Repeat the process until satisfied. In this case the end results were very different than what this looks like...
The article in Der Spiegel is scheduled to come out on Monday. Regarding the way I look: This is after 4 hours of aikido training. ;)
