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.

Nice, I like the first one except for the strobe wires(?) reflecting from his sunglasses, if its possible, try to photoshop it out, then it would be perfect :-)

Or, photoshop a different image into the glasses.... a record player, a studio board (like he's looking at his mixing board)...?

Agree. It would be an added bonus to a killer shot. I think the 1st one is definitely a winner.

I like the photos; however don't like the reflection that the lights have caused on the glasses.

I really like #2. If you got rid of the reflection I think it would be perfect.
