300/365 – No ripped abs for you!

Originally uploaded by Micah Taylor

I seriously have no idea how I’ve made it thus far.

My original idea was to do a 300 (the movie) inspired shot. Complete with ripped abs, desaturated skies, and grainy sepia tones. But then I realized I haven’t done a sit-up since before I was married and… well… didn’t feel like shaving… if you know what I mean.

Strobist info: sb900 at 1/4 power camera left bounced into the white part of a 5-in-1 reflector overhead. Snooted sb600 at 1/64th power behind subject and camera right. Triggered via manual CLS.
