    Ok, I have never shot with umbrella's before tonight. I used a two flas set up with umbrellas. I wish I had a hair light. I havent done much in the way of tweeking, frankly I would like to be able to punch up the eye's but am not sure how. I have PS Elements 8 and capture NX 1

    Is it just me or do these shots seem to bring out bags under his eyes?

    The lighting needs some tweaks. Was this shot at night? The pupils are huge, which IMHO is not an attractive look. Needed a reflector to soften some of the shadows, or to bouce light back in for a hair light. But you know that already. On #3 light is too high, that's where the dark eyes and bags come from. Try again. It's all part of the learning process. Keep posting.

    Thanks for the feedback. These were at night you are correct, that is why the pupils are like bowling balls.

    The main things I took from this shoot was A: working with my umbrella's B: I need at least one more light & C: I enjoyed shooting people, I just need to do it more. (also, I might not want to shoot up close at night)

    Thanks again. :thumbup:
