Humanoid by Bill Gekas

This was an unplanned shot that is out of my usual comfort zone. Not in relation to the lighting but more the style and concept of the shot and in the end it worked! It worked so well it made it into and those that know me know how I feel about that awesome gallery so it's always an honor to be published there.
As for the purists and rule followers, they most probably will not like this shot as I shot it up close and with a wide angle lens. What was I thinking? ;-)

A simple onelight setup and reflector as shown below managed this shot for me. And not forgetting the hairdryer!
