This is a selfportrait of mine. I put my camera on a tripod and I used a mannequin in order to set the focus manually. As I am of Gemini sign, I would a contrast between one side of the face and the other one. I positioned the main light aside (a small softbox on the right) and a black panel facing it on the opposite side. Another small softbox was placed about 30 degree and far from me; it was set about 2 or 3 EV lower than the Main Light to provide just a shine on the camera frontal lens. Finally a strobe with a grid has been used to light the background (+1 EV vs Main). The "rain effect" has been added later in Photoshop.
