Portraits: Auxiliary Lighting

This technically is not a portrait, but I thought it was too cool to leave out. So here it is!
Sepia and Grayscale:
This image was taken with a HDR method of three separate images. All images are of the same subject but with different lighting exposures to each. I added all three layers to photoshop and blended them together with layer masks to get all the coloring correct.
This image was taken with a tripod. First the background was taken without a subject. Next, the subject came in place on a bench and another photo was taken. Both layers were added to photoshop and a layer mask was added to make the bench disappear.
Image was taken with a shutter speed adjustment and the subject, mid-shot, ducked down in the box to give a ghost effect as if he was not there. Sepia coloring was added to give it an older look.
OUT OF THE BOX-Creativity:
This photo was done in two parts. I took the original image of the pen and feather and altered a few adjustments for lighting. Then I added a layer of texture of an old scroll. I lowered the opacity and layer masked a bit out. I then changed the image to sepia, and added the text on top.
Both light painting images were taken in a dark room with a timed shutter speed of 10 seconds. I ran to the object and clicked a flashlight on and off behind and around the objects to give the desired effects of light captured.
