I wish I'd used a round light because I hate the square reflections in his eyes. I wish I'd spent a little more time to work out the colouring on his neck because polarization is never a good look. And I wish I'd worked on his lips a little more (WHAT! PUN NOT INTENDED HOW DARE YOU) because they look a bit fake. But overall I think it's a successful headshot!
I know it's not going to be everyone's cup of tea but I like the blurryness here, it reminds me of a film photo which always has that softness about it. I like the darkness, the highlights and shadows on his cheekbones are PERFECT. Also I don't know what it is about them but his shoulders and body proportions look really good! And the crop!
Also as a general rule for life I really like the shape that stairs make but it's just the bricks that are killing me here :/
So clean and perfect. I actually really dig the commercial aspect of this. The lighting is really cool, the shirt is fitting really well, his jaw looks FANTASTIC. Again, I'm having a slight problem with his lips, eyes and hair, but really the lighting here is what seals the deal

so basically, the intent of this shoot was to give him a bit of a portfolio that made him look like he'd done lots of different shoots. Therefore, unlike all of my previous shoots where they weren't cohesive enough, for once I had to actually work to make them un-cohesive! Which it turns out wasn't that hard because it's kind of what I do naturally :P
And YES, it was shot the same afternoon as the last shoot. Yes it does concern me that you can tell. I should have put a bit more effort into this end of the shoot but basically I was doing this because his agency wanted me to and not because I did.
