Image Number 1: This is the least processed of the bunch - pretty much just turning it B&W, upping the exposure a bit, and cleaning up the backdrop a bit to make it more uniform white.

Image Number 2: This is the middle processed of the bunch - in addition to the above (#1), I tweaked the brightness, black point and contrast, and made the sunglasses darker.

Image Number 3 (below): This is the most processed of the bunch - in addition to the above (#2), I nudged the contrast still higher and altered the midpoint contrast.

My second flash with a softbox was sitting on the floor, just left of Zachary's rump, and pointed up at the backdrop - probably more toward the center than I should have.
