Just curious how you lit this shot? I can tell your light source is on the subjects left, but there is also a shaft of light in the left corner of the frame and yet the right side is dark. Can you explain?

A big, snooted strobe near the ceiling to my right. The upper portion of the circle of light allows some spill over onto the wall behind him to give the image some depth. If I moved it closer to him or more to my right, I could have eliminated it, but I like images to have more than one plane if possible.
