    I would suggest to learn how to how to crawl before sprinting. Take one light and learn how to light; then add another, then another and so on.

    The second photo i only used one strobe. Do you have any recommendations on where to learn more about using a single strobe?

    Yeah, everybody calls out Strobist.com. There is a wealth of info. But there are other places if you look hard enough. Check outCambridge In Color , The Luminous Landscape. Photographers like Joe McNally or Zack Arias. Also some manufacturers have "schools" like Lastolite. Don't forget youtube.


    A typical starting point would be 45x45, whereas the flash is 45° off the lens axis left or right and 45° above. Start there and build on it.
