Testing what you might ask!
I wanted to test an umbrella/pocket wizard/optical slave set-up and needed a subject. I also needed a shave.
This was the impetus for much too-ing and fro-ing, and some final Photoshop comping to bring all the shots into this one.
Strobist info: 580ex into umbrella to camera top left (~30degrees), white reflector to head left and an old pentax af330 optically slaved for back/rim light.
My crit: Techincally it all works, but:
I should've bounced of the ceiling as there's not enough light on the top of my head
The rim light is too tight on the back of my head.
A low power fill from lower camera right would've given a catch-light which might've looked/worked better than the reflector.
Moustaches are stupid!
