Well lit!

Hey John, is that spill light on the back of his head I'm seeing? Maybe a little bit of, lol, "hairlight" would've evened out the amt of light on his head.

Its probably some bounce from the background. It wasn't noticeable with the modeling lights as I recall. A flag would have been good - but where to place it? Oh, and the, 'hairlight' was obviously turned off for this one :lol:

By the way, I've seen comments on the forums asking why an incident light meter is still necessary. This shot would have been very difficult to expose without my Seconic L-558 getting me in the ballpark. I'd have probably blinded the poor guy with the 'shoot - chimp-look at histogram-shoot . . ." method suggested by many :D :D :D
