It's a very strong concept - makes you not want to be on the other side of the line of scrimmage from him. I think I'd like it better if his face was just a touch lighter as on my monitor you cannot quite distinguish his features. I could show you want I mean if you'd like.

Main light was a socked beauty dish...deliberately turned off so the viewer could not identify with the subject.

i love it, having the highlights on the nose gives enough definition to tell that there is a fierce face there hiding in the darkness. nicely executed, any other shots?

Yes, plenty more. Won't have more until after their premier.

BTW...here is the setup for this image. As noted previously, the main light was turned off in this image.

And the SOOC.

The editing was extremely light - may seem like a lot but it wasn't. Used our normal contrasty b/w conversion in LR plus a re-crop. No work needed to the backdrop (the darker backdrop is a result of the contrasty b/w conversion - all done in LR3) as we kept the lights far enough away and the back lights feathered forward.

Amped the exposure some along with the blacks. In PS I quickly fixed a couple skin areas, a very light skin smoothing layer, sharpening and very light dodge/burn. I didn't need much d/b as we painted him well with light SOOC.

I love the first image,extremely intimidating. I'm sure he likes it that way.

I like the original image. Would like to see a little bit stronger catch lights in the eyes...but that's pretty minor.

No front light = no catchlights. :)

I like it , we did similar lighting with my sons sr shots as he too wanted that mystery look , you nailed it way better than I did. Great work.

There are two, relatively distinct lights reflecting in his eyes there. I don't know what other term to use for lights being picked up in the eyes, but that's what I'm referring to.
