Very nice.

Is it with the on-camera flash?

I put all the settings in the camera(I had just purchased it from a guy in craigslist so I didn't know anything about this camera), did a couple of test shots with my buddy posing to make sure it was what I wanted, once I like the results I gave him the camera and told him to count til 3 to press the trigger, I jumped 3 times till I got the right results.
Post was simple, I made a copy converted it to b&w and overlay it on the color one, adjusted my opacity to my liking.
Thank you.

Few things to learn from this shot, great job with (still) unfamiliar equipment. Clever PP as well, will try this technique sometime. Thanks for posting.

I'm sorry I'm so ignorant but can you elaborate a bit on the use of b&w in post?

Thanks,
Keith

i make a duplicate of the color one and convert it to b&w, the b&w is gonna bring back a lot of the detail lost specially in the sky, then i bring em both from lightroom to photoshop and put one on top of the other one and do an overlay and play with the opacity of the color one. (most likely the color would be on top). results can vary depending on the image fyi.

Love the grittiness of this photo. I like how you have a cloud surrounding your right hand perfectly. Thanks for explaining the PP, I'll have to try that out sometime.

lots of people bash on the pop up flash of most cameras, but i think as long as you can manually control the power they are great tools, sure it is not the best but better than none.
thx

Oscar.
