This shot is styled to be reminiscent of classic horror film posters from the 70s and 80s. It was taken using a single Nikon SB700 speedlight to above and left of the camera, firing through a 70cm beauty dish and grid. I absolutely love the beauty dish as it is so versatile and can go from very harsh focused lighting to very soft light similar to an octabox. I retouched and edited the photo in a combination of Adobe Photoshop CS6 and NiK Color Effex Pro 4.

Camera: Nikon D800, Lens: Sigma 24-70mm/2.8
