I’m caught immediately by how many circles there are in this shot… is that the moon in the upper left (though if the background is black as black then it could be a far off streetlight), and then a sprinkle of street lights below? The half circle his mustache creates as well as his thumb beneath the button encourages the motif.
The beard is amazing.
The B&W pictures are an exciting turn, but more so, the ring flash. It defines the skin, hair and fabrics in totally different way. It fits perfectly into your bag of tricks. Always a fan, P~
