Oh sure... Shot against a black cloth, with one light (in a hair light's position, but slightly off center), with a large octobox (I forget the size). Camera was mounted on tripod w/12s timer. Used a spray bottle, held in my right hand. Shot at 1/125, f5.6, 100 iso; E-30 & 35-100mm.

Re: Self-portrait...

Sean, you look soooo cool. Too cool, in fact, I don't think I'll show this one to my wife!

Brilliant low-key lighting to create a mysterious and moody atmosphere and the use of the spray bottle is inspirational. Thanks for sharing details of the set up.
