Shoot Thru Umbrella
I met this man inside his printer graphic studio, where I went for working reasons. I found a certain similarity with an hollywoodian actor (I can guess Al Pacino, but I know that nobody but me could see this similarity). Well I asked to him if he could pose for me, just for a couple of shoots.
I used the potentiality of the Nikon Creative System to command a Nikon SB800 set in manual mode from my camera. A small umbrella was positioned close to the subject to provide a fast light fallen behind the subject. In this way I have easily removed the background into the shadows (then I post-produce the background into the black).
