This is a low-key-shot using youst one light source. To create this effect I put some kind of grid in front ob the speedlight, lighting the scene. The distance of the grid was used to control the softness of the shadows.

The idea to shoot an image like that was that a friend of mine (model) had some kind of an depressive phase I don't remember if it was break-up crisis or something like that but he told me, that he wanted to leave that behind, so we took that shot and he walked on.

I hope you like my photograph. Please subscribe and leave a comment! :):) I'd be so happy to read your feedback.
