That lighting

The photo by Kris that inspired the request for today's Larry Meadows series was in a group of dramatically lighted images.  This one also fits that category, perhaps even more so.

  1. Dramatic lighting and a brooding Larry Meadows make for a stunning photo.

  2. I really don't think this photo (and one other KRIS studio photos in your posting) is Larry Meadows. It looks much more like Johnny Lamont. The face shape is different (Larry has more of a pointy chin. Johnny has a slight cleft chin).

    1. I just checked my files on Johnny Lamont and I agree. (I even have one of these photos labeled as him with no photographer listed.) The sources on those two photos are pretty solid, but everyone makes mistakes. I know that because I make lots of them, lol.
