I plan to do the '52 challenge this year (one themed photo a week). The first week's theme is sin, so I chose 'Lust' and adapted an existing shot for it. Usually I'll shoot a new photo.
This was shot with just a gridded beauty dish firing across Joel from camera left. I deliberately de-personalised the shot a little as I felt the face might be a distraction from the theme.
