This is my mate Billy Angus, drummer with Scotlands very own KISS tribute band "Destroyer". We were doing some shots as he is the newest member of the band and I decided this shot might fit well in with this challenge.

Light source was one flashgun to the left hand side, mounted on a light stand shooting through a white umbrella.

I cropped the shot, adjusted brightness and contrast on a levels adjustment layer, cloned out some specs from hair and outfit, cloned out a thin curved line from edge of backdrop, increase vibrancy of colours a little, unsharp mask and resized for challenge.

As a portrait the downward glance and pose is effective. Theatrical.
