Today I was working on self portraits to build out my book and for it to have a little more Details-esque, edgier portrait content that borders on West Coast meets fashion, meets the music industry, etc, etc,...here is one of the frames to share...

Shot with my 1Ds MkII, and 24-70 2.8L, 2 Light setup using a 53" Elinchrom Rotalux Octagon, Silver Umbrellla, and two reflectors (one white, one silver)

Thanks, no I haven't. Today, I was working on a specific look for my portfolio, more fashion, less drama. I work a lot with dramatic lighting due to my work , so this was a nice change of pace for me.

The pose just happened to work. It was just me shooting myself via a remote and looking at my reflection in the lens... :)

Well, you know they always say the grass appears greener on the other side. :D Funny, so similar, but two different worlds.

Thanks, although I was going for a very specific look here for my book/portfolio,

I'd be interested to hear you elaborate a little more. IMO, Lighting preference is as individual as each person, and terms can get crossed. You mean a wider ratio boosting contrast?

That being said, I was trying specifically to do no tricks, straight off camera looks with a traditional "fashion style" (ie; white background). This image has no had PP done other than a removal of a catch light on the near lens.
