Hoss Image Black and White-1

Hoss Mahdavi FBIPP FMPA QE used Crimson for this shoot using Hasselblad.
Lighting technique: main light from the right side of the sitter (left of the image) and letting the backdrop light fall onto the man from the right of the image. Hoss says: "Shades of Red, Pink, Blue, Green, Yellow, Black and White are the most used in my portraits as I can generally match a clients dress or accessories with the backdrop. And each of these reacts differently in B&W photography."
