I borrowed Mules hands for this one. I couldn’t figure out a way to use my own with out a tripod.
I draped black fabric over part of his arms and knees so there was a solid background. Grabbed a desk lamp to avoid shadows and allow for some warmth in the lighting.
Edit Number 1. Made it black and white and did some cropping, but that’s about it.
Edit Number 2. Changed it to Sepia tones, added some softening to draw the eye in and cropped the edges.
Personally I love the second one and plan on blowing this up and framing it for the living room. Which one do you prefer?
