Three days on the trot. It's almost unprecedented Wink
Thanks for the valuable feedback over the last couple of days. All good learning experience for me and comments that I will think about next time I get a chance to shoot at work.

This image is a little different to the previous two but I was looking for a different environment (i.e. not seated at a desk in a white-walled room). A circular wall light was one of the visual opportunities (although have a steel railing a might use another time!). Slim pickings Smile

Anyway, thanks, for looking in.

Another cracking image, nicely composed and well lit? Was this a soft box up right of camera? I like the idea of the light on the wall to break the image and give context of location. And he looks much less informal and a lot less jocular, although you can see he is still an approachable guy. NIcely shot, really good image

Good shot, the guy looks relaxed, maybe he is a confident type of guy but more probably your skill in making him relaxed.
He has quite a wide face, you might think about lighting on the short side to lessen this.
I have to say I really don't like the wall light . It has a bright edge to it and is at face level, so I find my eye being drawn to it. In other words it's a distraction. Also its big and round, reminding me his face is quite big and round. You say it's a visual opportunity, I'm not sure what you mean by this. I'm interested in the face, the character, not the cheap-looking light fitting.
Small point his tie seems to have lost it's stripes, that doesn't look right.

Thanks for the comments. Martin - it's the way the tie's lit. Mostly in shadow. Yes, the softbox was only about a foot away, off camera right. Very few natural features in the office - it's almost hospital-like in its bareness! I quite liked the round duplication and felt it added some textured darkness to balance it out a bit.

One more to come...maybe! Thanks again for the input.
