It's good to have another Cali brotha here in the Chi, especially a good friend from undergrad. Welcome to the midwest, NU and let's hope you're ready for the winter bro.
I tried to go with a Reggie Bush-esque look from a promo shot of his from years back.
-Fancier 300w above camera, aimed downwards in a softbox. The light was bounced into white foam core directly to Carlos's left and front.
-The background is my grey inflatable mattress.
-Shot with the 85mm f/1.8 @ 2.8 with a .9 ND filter.
