I have a weakness for the old Pulp-Era heroes: grizzled men who grab hold of the world with both hands and never let go. Bane was created as a modern version of Doc Savage, and I couldn't be happier with him. Though he's often used as the "heavy" in a story, Bane is fiercely intelligent and a cunning strategist. He's the only villain to not only take Batman, but force Bruce Wayne to pass the mantle on to another person. With a luchador-esque mask. Rock!
Shooting him was just a simple setup and click with him just standing in front of the backdrop. Color correction in Photoshop made him more interesting by combining a sepia overlay with the cool blues of the original photo and tweaking the contrast for drama. Really simple, but I am pretty happy about it.
We can't stop here, this is EXIF country!
