Inspired by: Game of Thrones

I've been really taken with some of the portraits that HBO is putting out to promote Game of Thrones. The following one in particular, featuring Peter Dinklage/Tyrion Lannister has to be my favourite.

I was so inspired by the bloody thing that at this week's GoT viewing party, I hauled along some strobes and some gels and went to work creating the following. Tyrion's got a lot more grit on him than we do, so I went a bit extreme on the sharpness and contrast to make sure all of our dirtiness showed up. Other than those tweaks in CameraRAW, these are, pretty much, how they came out of the camera, and they stand as decent testament to the power of light.
