I shot these for a friend of mine who's a budding music artist, and wants to eventually become a music producer. He asked me to shoot these yesterday, and I think they came out pretty well! I tried to go for a combination of a high-key meets heavy shadows, using various lights.
Shot using a Profoto Ring Light:
Shot using a strip light, one background light on narrow beam reflector, and one gridded beauty dish to my left. I also had a white card to my right to give his left arm a little bit of detail and bounce back a bit of light.
Same thing, just a slightly different pose.
