Thought I’d get out the gates quickly and get a jump start on the new year. My latest self portrait. Maybe I’ll do one for each month now ;-)

Camera : 5D MkII
Lens : 17-40 F4
Strobist : 580EXII shot thru softbox just in front of subject. 430EXII bare pointed at wall behind subject and another 430EXII bare to camera left as a little rim.
