I've been trying to explore some new (to me) styles of doing portraits this week. Thought this crop from one of them worked well for 'Anger'.

Thanks for looking!

Holy texture!

And those eyes pop like no other.

Fantastic shot.

I'm pretty inexperienced with portraits and lighting - is the slightly less light on the left intentional?

Thanks!

I'm inexperienced with portraits and lighting, too. I wanted to get more of a feel for it, which is why I started experimenting with this.

I was going for a little less light on one side of the face (whether that was well-executed or not...I'm not sure). I only have one flash, and I placed it off the camera up above my head and to the right of the frame, with a little homemade diffuser on it. Then, I had a pair of lamps with the very white CFL bulbs in them to the left side of the frame and slightly below my face, so I wouldn't get TOO much shadow on that side.
