Kevin,

It's definitely a cool feeling. I shoot a lot of head shots for 4year theater students at temple Penn and University of the arts. This is the first one that I know of that has gotten a major TV role out of it. I've had quite a few as National cast and off Broadway cast members.

It's a good shot - a real working shot, having done such a good job for his career. You done good!

As a picture, it looks a bit underexposed to me (but then everybody says I consistantly overexpose!) I'm looking at his eyes, and they do not look much brighter than the surrounding skin. Is that intentional for printing on glossy? Or is it a style for this particular use? Or am I luminescence blind as well?

(ps, I certainly don't mean any offence by this, it's more like I'm curious.)

I've definitely seen this dude in some movie/show already. Going to go google him up.

Good job, btw.

Chris, The intention of the shot was to make him look tired and over worked, Like he has been on an investigation all night. I actually darkened the eyes a bit to help convey that. I also bumped up the contrast quite a bit, typically my head shots are very flat lighting, but I wanted to give this a little more depth. I also had him not shave, but unfortunately he had very blond hair, so It did not show up well.
