  1. This a pretty cool picture, and I expect it was fun to do. It works very well because it has a strong sense of story and, although we don't know whether the man is a private detective or he's just watching out for the postman, it can really set us off filling the gaps in our imagination. The man has an interesting face and Dean has lit him in a way that emphasises the shape of his features, and the blue tone to the light delivers a chilling atmosphere and a little bit of mystery. I feel as though I know this man, as I've seen him in plenty of TV dramas, and as much as his face is full of character I'm not sure I'd want to hang out with him for long :-) Great job Dean.

    Lens used was the 25mm f1.7 which for £140 I feel is a good little buy.

      Thank you, it is actually an internal window at my work and so was easy to light from the other side to create the shadows from the blinds, just had to try and create the impression they were looking outside.
