    Do you want to elaborate on the lighting that you used for the portrait?

    Thanks for messages guys. For info shot was taken using natural light in front of a window with a piece of white card in front to reflect the light back into the lower shadows. The image was originally head and shoulders but I thought a tight crop gave more impact

    Very nice choice on the crop and with your lighting.

    Hi. Used Aperture on an iMac. Simply desaturated colour added sepia which I turned tight down to 1 just to warm up the black and white tones and burnt out the edges to remove any distracting detail.
