We had a group of photographers in the studio and Raul was one of the models. During the shoot I found out that he was a B-Boy so he started demonstrating a few of his moves. I liked this one and asked him to repeat it a few times as I got my timing down. I got some grief from other photographers for having some of my gear in the shot but I thought it was important because without the gear everyone who looked at the photo tried to turn it so he was right-side-up.
For post-production I used a technique by Calvin Hollywood called Freaky Amazing Detail in which I brought the image through a series of layers designed to bring lots of detail out.
