    This is a take off of joey lawrence and martin wiklund. I wanted to take what they did and push it one step further.

    Let me know what you think plz..I might have overdone the processing a lot though.

    Strobist:
    1 b1600 octabox above camera
    1 b800 reflective white umbrella behind and left of subject.

    I would say your fighter is dropping his left.

    I like the lighting.

    I wasn't familiar with Wiklund before I saw your post but your processing doesn't look any more overdone than much of his.

    i think i would've picked something like a warehouse or something more industrial for the setting but processing is pretty good to me

    He used to post here a lot (Rabieshund - or something like that, I probably spelled it wrong)... Where has he gone? Bigger & better things, I have to assume.
    He had some truly awesome work... He's got to be making the big bucks by now...

    I wish he would stop back in - really loved his work.

    edit
    Spelling is right.
    I found the thread that this photo was inspired by, but the photo has been edited out.

    This is a nit pick, but dirty shirt, face hands, but nice clean shoes?

    As well I like the lighting, but the umbrella in the back is spilling a bit too much light on the door, a flag on it could help to control that.

    Thanks for all the comments guys!!
    Martin right now is working for a sweedish record label doing photos. He's got it going pretty well.

    Sooner: haha yeah he isn't a fighter. He actually told me he's never been in a fight in his life, which surprised me. Whatever

    0||||||0 : next time i talk to him i'll tell him to post up his stuff for you.

    Another new guy: i am not using lucas art. just a lot of levels, shadow highlight, dodging and burning, umm color changes etc.

    Winsley and iron: thanks a lot guys!

    Speed trap: haha i didn't even notice that! Man it's gonna bother me now. I should have given him an old pair of my shoes. maybe i'll photoshop it later.

    Anyway thanks for the comments guys, sorry for the late reply.
