This is Alessandro, he and I worked together in this quite small kitchen for a while.

A professional kitchen has to be well lit by law, so there are three neon bulbs wacking out the lighting here. It's an effect I thought would be cool, but I wanted more light on him as well, so I snuck a little flash off on the right side by the pans, and another on the lower left for fill on his body. This was all shot during service so I had about three minutes to direct and shoot everything, and I was shooting from the kitchen door so it was quite rushed as people were stepping over and around me... Either way quite fun though!

Thanks to all for the votes and the great comments!

Hey didn't I suggest you do a shot like this a year or so ago? :-) Glad that you shot from the safety of the cold side Chris, and you were really brave to shoot during service no less with a 3-min window. Great work, grats on what the blue!

Marvellous Chris. I really like the painterly style.

Why so much processing? It looks rather like a 3D movie looks when you take the glasses off.

Way to go, Chris!

Congrats Chris. Great to see your name up on a blue. Nice shot and emotions and character portrayed very well here. No doubt a good model as well.

This is magnificent. What a setting, although I think the glow is misused here.

Heads and shoulders above the rest. Location, composition and processing are spot on. Congrats on the ribbon (and if it ain't blue I will be shocked!)

I love it! His expression is priceless. Was it posed? If yes than he is really good at drifting away with his thoughts - or at least looking like he is far far away :) that knife amazing touch - makes one think what he is thinking so deeply about. And I love the pp.

I like this one, a bit over exposed for my taste though.
