    So this year my friend Madison won best over all for the second year in a row at the World Beard and Mustache Championship. His beard is seriously a sight to behold, especially in person.

    This weekend I got to photograph him for the second time. I've been doing a lot of client work lately, so it was really nice to be able to do something for fun again. I took the opportunity to experiment a bit with the editing, so not all of the shots are alike when it comes to the processing.

    All shots were captured in natural light, with a white reflector used in the first shot for some fill. The buildings surrounding the location were reflecting a lot of light, so I was able to get some pretty cool lighting with minimal extra gear.

    Camera: Canon 5D classic.
    Lens: Canon 135mm f/2

    Amazing! I especially love the second one. Could you tell me about your lighting set-up there?

    Being a sikh with a flowing beard (when untied) I kinda liked your friend and the associating pics. :)

    Thank you.
    Thank you. There was sunlight adding a rim light from behind him, and a building was reflecting sunlight from the front acting as the key light.
    Thank you.
