I'm looking for advice on how to make the most of my new boom kit & octaboxes for dramatic portraiture.

    The heavy shadow in his eyes doesn’t allow me to connect with the subject.

    Can you explain your light set up?  I’m guessing high camera left angled downwards.  The highlight on his left shoulder throws me off a little, but I’m figuring out lighting myself.

    48″ octa 8′ up on a 45 degree angle over my head, with a second 2×3 gridded softbox in the back corner. His brow is so strong that the shadow was a stylistic choice, but ifI did it again I’d likely bring in a bounce board for fill.
