Camera: Canon EOS-350D Rebel XT
Lens: Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II

There were two images I liked from this session. Both had the same red glasses and red shirt. One seemed to work better for the Personality challenge so I decided to submit them both. Sorry for two similar images in neighboring challenges.

Shot with a speedlight into a shoot-through umbrella.

Post Processing:
Camera Raw - Minor white balance adjustment
CS4 - Cloned out some dust on the glasses and few stray hairs, sharpened the eyes, softened the harsh lines in the chapped lips, dodged and burned - eyes and a few other spots, curves, added border, saved for web
