Ron,

Cool shot. The expression definitely fits the scene. Nice capture.

No BS - The first and only time I ever played poker when I was 17, I was dealt 4 Aces and a Deuce. Never played again!

Thanks for the comments guys....

Here is the lighting setup.

Also the hair light had a red gel over it as well.

As several have already stated, very nice! A riveting gaze that is obviously trying to physch out his opponent or spot a revealing tell.

The only small tiny detail is that a serious player would not have his hole cards exposed as in the photo. In high stakes poker, you cover the cards with both hands as you view what your hole cards are. You do not keep looking at them and certainly don't have them tilted up at any other time but during the brief moment when you see what you have. One reason is to keep someone from seeing the cards from behind that might signal to your opponent. Naturally this small detail has nothing to do with the excellent photo, but is just a small detail that can add to the realism of the shot. This is sort of general photographic rule that when one creates a real life scene that one tries to get it as realistic as possible. Hope to see more from your Poker series.
Cheers,
rfs

Thanks for the comment...

And yes I normaly do cover my hole cards with both hands during my peek at them, and would never hold them up like that while trying to get a read on my opponent.

For the purposes of the photograph I did not want to hide the cards so people are not wondering what I was holding, if they were not familiar with card play.

This is a self portrait and was hard enough to get one photograph I liked much less a series.... Maybe I can get some models to pose for me and make it more interesting.
