Had a look online at some Lou Reed portraits, noticed he liked these high-contrast B&W portraits. Often appeared with dark glasses and leather jacket, so sought to emulate that. Hopefully wont get hit too hard for yet another self-portrait.

Just a single flash shot through a white umbrella. Nothing more than that. Some of the light bouncing off a nearby wall probably provided some fill light too.
