Today I’ve a new picture to show you; a portrait of Arnold Schwarzenegger…

Arnold Schwarzenegger (Hot Toys) Portrait by Glyn Dewis

Well when I say portrait I mean of the Terminator Genisys Hot Toys model that I bought a couple of months back.

This picture and the complete retouching process is going to be included in my new book Photograph Like a Thief but originally I’d intended to do the typical Terminator picture with the damaged skull, red eye and so on, but to be honest thought it a bit cliché.

So I opted to do a portrait of Arnold as Arnold.

Tomorrow I’ll post a Behind the Scenes post showing the lighting set up, location and so on, but if you’re a Facebook user you can also head over to my Facebook Page where I did a Facebook Live video whilst doing the photo shoot; you can check it out by CLICKING HERE
