Part of a series I did for G Magazine of Greenville, this is a portrait shot of Steven Devereaux Greene, one of the Top Chefs of Greenville, SC.
I wanted to balance some strobe with ambient (a dark blue sky, window reflection, and the green Devereaux's sign). There was a huge, unavoidable sodium vapor street light above, and a couple of green street lamps across the street (I didn't mind those so much). This was a gorilla shoot, no permits, so no major stands... Just a speedlight beauty dish above camera right, and a speedlight striplight kicker across the steet. There is a bunch of ambient spill on Steven, but I was able to closely enough match the color temp of the strobe with a gel.
