Yes, it's me! :) At the suggestion of the other SC, we're all (well, some of us) entering daft self-portraits that match our user icons :D

For those that are interested, I was using chiqui's lighting rig, one strobe to each side, to completely blow out the background and most of my arms, and the cable release to fire off a batch of one shot every other second. The TC-80N3 rules! :D

In post, I did the usual crop, rotate, sharpen, etc steps. The shades are very light (esp with flash), so I had to burn them quite considerably. Next was a desat, with a contrastly layer faded out to make it pop more. Finally, the hair became blue again :D

Nice the way the hands disappear into the frame. The way the beard defines the face. And with that hair it's really DNMC! Love it. Top ten, maybe ribbon. Congrats
