chiaroscuro {239/365}

Working on a few new self-portrait ideas for my contact page on my site.  Thought I'd use the chiaroscuro technique for lighting (contrasty; light meets dark, dark meets light for a dimensional effect).  I toned down the contrast a bit to create a more dramatic effect (what more can you expect of me?!).  The chiaroscuro is more subtle in this one.

Hasselblad 503cw with Carl Zeiss 80mm - f2.8 @125th 50iso; stripbox camera right set at 90 angle to me.
