Beneath The Surface

In Portrait by mark0 Comments

Beneath The Surface sits a metal bar anchoring his sternum and ribs in place from Pectus excavatum.  In a few weeks it will be two years with the bar.  He’s now taller, stronger, faster, happier and healthier.

This photo was inspired by ludumdare theme “Beneath the surface” that I participated in.

The x-ray is a photo I took of his x-ray shown to us after surgery.  The main key light is a beauty dish set at 1/2 power elevated just above his head on angled down about 40 degrees.  Behind him is a speed light set at 3/4 power with a light blue gel.  Shot with my Canon 5DMKII with a 24-105 lens.  Camera was set at 1/100 sec at f/22, ISO 200.  It was processed with Nik Software and Photoshop CC.
