Some portraits are easier than others. Just 5 minutes and 15 or-so shots was all I needed. And my first published here with the 45mm.

I have to ask - are these all taken against a white background or are you clever and change the background in some software? Think they all look fab - great series. And what a lot of biddable friends!
Thanks! I'm useless at re-touching, so yes, they're all taken against the same off-white wall in my office/studio. I'm lucky, the big windows make for lovely natural lighting for this kind of work. And, yes none of this would be possible without their support, for which I'm extremely grateful.
I think this is my current most favorite among the series of portraits. The light just hits him wonderfully giving that shadow that creates enough mystery.
I'm often wary with too much shadow (that sometimes can be un-flattering) but I think you're right that it works well here. So thank you for the feedback Katrina, it's very much appreciated and encouraging me to keep on experimenting :)
