Gobo: Lights on this picture?

Dec 9, 2008
Hello all,

I recently came upon this movie poster, http://www.imdb.com/media/rm3304956416/tt1308729?ref_=tt_ov_i — haven't seen the movie, but I really like the poster.

I have been thinking on how the photographer was able to get those two sharp lines between light and dark on the actor with the biggest head (on the poster)— Sylvester Stallone—. I think he/she used gobos, but more than that, it seems for me quite a mystery... If anyone has portrait pictures that look like this, could you post that and explain reverse lighting on that?

Thanks for the help!

All the best,
