I wanted to go b/w. i wanted to use my good studio lighting. I have one softbox to the left of the camera. Nothing to the right except a white wall so enough bounce to illuminate the shadow side.

I wanted to go with a thoughtful entry. This is a self-portrait with my new short hair. I went with glasses because I wanted the complete focus to be on the words. I went with the aggressive crop because that is my natural style. I can't help it.

Cute and clever. I know you wanted the paper to be obvious, however, I wonder how it would have looked shaped as an oval or even a carton callout shape? Regardless, very artsy kind of shot that should do well. Good luck.
