Story behind the photograph
I have used a very cheap set of twin halogen lights for this photograph. Total cost: AUD $25 from a local hardware shop The lights output 2x250W and produced enough light for a relatively slow exposure at 1/25 of second but with a good light falloff for a dramatic picture.
This photo was taken using Canon EF 50mm F/1.4 lens, which really shines in these conditions. Model: my daughter Michelle.
