heres the finished image (for those who saw the WIP mr.mechanic image).

so this is my buddy Brendan... you can see it on his name tag! he works at a very dirty place that fixes forklifts. i think it shows. i knew it would make for a good shot with all the texture and what not so he let me come by for a bit after hours to take some shots.

lighting was 3 lights. 1 bare light that was standing about where the white bucket on the floor was. then an umbrella high up on the left, and a softbox for fill off camera right.

the background was a 12 exposure hdr that was processed in photomatix and photoshop. the details came out realy nice, which is why i wanted to post it as its own image.

i think im learning more each time i do one of these... its pretty fun!
