I love this shot so much.
When doing assignment photography, don't forget to shoot for yourself as well. Get what is needed, and take an extra few minutes to get a shot for yourself.
I got to photograph in an operating room at a local hospital, and at the end of the shoot, I had this image in my mind. I plopped him in front of one of their operating lights, and used a second operating light off to the side to light him.
I love this shot.
If I hadn't of taken the extra few minutes I would never have gotten this. Shoot for yourself just as you shoot for the client. The two should go together. I love this portrait.
