The plan right now is to redo it with film that isn't expired on Saturday. I'm sure that the 'cape' is from how he's holding his arms. Lighting was a 200 watt daylight compact fluorescent above and, oh, 3 feet away, and another 100 watt at about hip level pointed directly at him.
Edit: I'm also buying a loupe, even if it's a cheap one. I was slightly off focus, but pretty close if the big scan is anything to go by.
Edit again: and, yeah, the COMPOSITION is more what I want to do again, not the scanning artifacts and the film defects. Heh.
