I found some studio type lights in my basement, from the days way back when my parents did photography. Decided this was the perfect occasion to try them out.
It's set up in my basement, with one light on my left, and the flash on the camera giving just the slightest touch of fill.
It's a self-portrait, so it took tons of tries to get it to turn out well, especially using 2.8...
Thankfully you can't see it in the small photo, but looking over them, i could see all the hairs i missed while shaving!

You've captured a great smile here and the eyes look awesome. The head is so high up in the photo though that his body seems extremely long. The dark suit blends in with the background so it kind of looks like a floating head with a collar and tie. I would have given you a much higher score if it wasn't cropped so close to the top and maybe more cropped off of the bottom.

Very nice portrait. I don't care for the title.

Not sure it was a good strategy to show off the bottom of his suit coat at the expense of lopping off his head.
