MNS - Night Portrait

Exposure: Aperture F11|Shutter Speed 15s|ISO 100
Night portrait is way harder than I thought, finding a good background, to place the subject comfortably so they can hold still for long period of time and yet not having that stiff look, and run around to pop the strobe here and there, anyway it's tiresome but fun process.

Technical wise, this is not HDR though it looks like it, for the lighting technique, existing fluorescent light on camera left, then one pop of 1/16 power strobe from the front of the subject at camera right and 3 pops of 1/2 power strobe from the back of the subject at camera right. The post process is straight forward, just unsharp mask and minor contrast adjustment.
