People with scars are the subject of my current portraiture project. My friend Renata, who is a dermatologist and is very comfortable with her scar, which she received in a skiing accident, inspired it. I wanted to show Renata’s strength and how the scar really makes her even stronger and more interesting.
This was shot with an Alien Bees B800 on the left using a 43-inch shoot-through umbrella. Another B800 with a grid pointing just above the scar on her left arm. Finally one B800 lighting the black background. Camera was my Canon 5D Mk II at f/10. 50mm focal length.
