Weapon of Choice
Lens: 70mm f2.4 Limited Camera: K-7 Photo Location: UK ISO: 400 Shutter Speed: 1/90s Aperture: F8 
Posted By: antihero, 03-26-2013, 06:09 AM

First shoot using the 70mm limited in anger, brilliant little lens! How Pentax manage to make a 70mm that small compared to everyone else...I don't know

Shoot of Lisa, owner of a hair salon, lit by an off-camera Nikon SB24 flash in a gridded softbox. Happy with the result...

Very expressive... the lines on the forehead and the look.

The big question is, was Lisa happy with the result?

She should be, it's a good image and something different form the run of the mill portraits we all usually see, well done.

She sure did, especially as she was extremely nervous leading up to the shoot! Ended up having a great time and managed to get her nice and relaxed, which shows imho!

thanks for all the comments

It is well executed but I feel the title and concept do not match her "deer in the headlights" expression. If she's holding a weapon, she should look something different than surprised. Just my two cents.
