Faint - a self portrait

Spent an afternoon noodling around with lighting yesterday. No models or subjects around, save myself.

One Photogenic PL-06 with a 16″ reflector above the camera and a 30″ square silver reflector below the camera and parallel to the floor. Upper barn door adjusted to provide gradient on background.
