Masked Crusader
Lens: SMC Pentax-F 50mm F1.7 Camera: Pentax K-5 

This was done with the Pentax K-5.
This shoot was for an assignment for my digital photography class.
The assignment was that I had to have one person as my model and do at least 200 photos of them.
This one in particular was the first time I had ever used studio lighting. I used 2 Alien Bees B-800 flash units provided by my school to take this shot.
Post processing I used the Nik Software plugin Color Effects Pro, Detail Extractor. This brought out a lot of the detail, making the shot surreal.

I just noticed that the lens was the Smc PENTAX-DA 40mm F2.8 XS.
I don't know how to change that input above.

Hereby nominated for being awesome! A perfect balance of beauty and grim atmosphere. Reminds me of the Fallout game series.The assignment however seems rather unspecific to me. What was the educational objective?
