Casual corporate portraits

A company hired me to shoot portraits of twenty some employees recently.
Usually corporate portraits are the tried and true on a canvas backdrop thing, but this company wanted a casual look and gave me the go ahead to do my thing !

I shot in a common area of their HQ where there was no foot traffic.
I lit my subjects using a 36" soft box at camera right and a silver reflector on the left.
The background lighting consisted of a strobe on the floor with gold gel aimed through a potted plant with the light skimming the wall. I placed another strobe behind my subject with a purple gel striking the hallway wall giving the duo color scheme.

I shot with a Nikon D800 with a Nikon 85mm 1.8 @ 1/125  f/4.5 for very shallow depth of field.
