With that in mind, I thought I'd give it a try with a three-light setup. The main light is a gridded small soft box to camera left, and I have another gridded box as a rim light that's up high pointing down toward my back. The third light has a 10-degree grid spot to give a small circle of light on the wall behind me. I turned things around from normal by using a dark green wall as the backdrop, with the studio white backdrop at camera right providing a little bit of fill bounced from the main light.
Lastly, I converted the image to black and white, because I think that seems to be some unwritten rule that when photographers do self portraits, they have to be black and white. Here is the final result.
