While visiting Fort Point in San Francisco, I saw some large areas in the building that looked great for moody portraits. I tried to use my cheapo Cactus triggers to play w/ light while there, but I couldn't trigger them after a short distance. After realizing they were crap, I decided to order a set of FlashWaves.

A week later, I returned to give the moody shots a try. Luckily, the FlashWaves performed perfectly.

Here's the best shot from that day:

Very nice, and definitely darker than the one before. The lighting goes well with the surroundings, I like it.

I like the composition, but it seems a bit too contrasty and bright, at least on my monitor, for the mood you are trying to create. Just my opinion. Its still a good shot and always fun when you can use some gadgets successfully!!

Self portrait is something I have not tried, but your shot looks good to me.
