Ivan's portrait session

I have to confess that doing male portraits is my thing lately. I feel like it comes so naturally and easy!

We did Ivan's portraits at one of my most favorite locations in downtown Dallas - Winspear Opera. In real life Ivan is very sweet and smily and  I love how he was able to pull this dramatic look which worked just perfect with what we had in mind! With his look and outfit we were inspired by classic portrait and fashion photographers and wanted to create a timeless look. I even experimented with my post processing and while my photos are usually la bit lighter and crisp this time I tried to go with more classic black and white. What do you think, too dark?
