Challenge: Lou Reed Tribute (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: Portfolio
Camera: Leica M9
Lens: Leica 50mm f/0.95 M Noctilux ASPH
Location: My office/warehouse
Date: Oct 31, 2013
Aperture: f/0.95
ISO: 320
Shutter: 1/30
Date Uploaded: Nov 1, 2013

The background was created with a fog machine. During shooting, we filled the space with as much fog as we could, and then we let it drift down and settle a bit. There was one shop light sitting on a ladder behind the subject. I put violet color film in front of the light. Later I changed the color to orange in PP. You can see remnants of the violet color on the outer edges. I'm not an avid Lou Reed fan, so I was not sure how this would do.

Thank you for the votes and comments.

Congrats Dennis. This image is a 10. Any musician would die to have a picture like this of him/herself.
