Yorick and the Girl

This is a serendipity image.

I shot this at a Strobist meetup, and the original image was terribly overexposed, thanks to another meetup participant who managed to synchronize his shot with mine. No big deal, them's the breaks when you've got a a bunch of folks with their own lighting set ups firing away in close proximity to each other. I used to have this happen shooting college basketball: every so often I'd manage to synchronize my shot with whoever was using the big strobes up in the ceiling. Talk about a bulletproof negative!

Anyway, I didn't delete the image because when I looked at it, I immediately thought - "that might make a cool high contrast black-and-white."

So I kept it around, and a couple of days, ago, finally got to working on it. I actually upped the exposure and contrast even more in Aperture, then took it into Silver Efex Pro for B&W conversion and toning.
