Workplace Portrait

I was asked by a coworker to make a portrait for him.  This is Shed.  Of course, I did our standard headshot that we use at Oracle.  Conservative lighting, professional looking, against a white backdrop.  When I was confident that we had that, I asked Shed if he would indulge me for one more.  "One for me", I said.  He said sure, so I had him lose his tie and I grabbed him a darker jacket.  He's a nice guy who is almost always smiling and making jokes.  I wanted to capture that spirit.  

I did a quick lighting change and killed the background light so that the white background would go grey.  Adjusted my exposure and here's the result.  Definitely my favorite from the session.
