Let me know what you think!
I really like the idea but they seem a little dark?
Yea, too underexposed. I see your vision though.
Updated first post with slightly lighter versions... better?
They are a bit underexposed and the light doesn't seem to have impact. Did you have some off camera flash on these?
I was using 2 external flashes. No on-camera flash.
What do you mean the light doesn't seem to have impact?
Also how come you don't think the underexposed works here? I think it sets the mood of the picture more. If i have everything in correct exposure it does not convey the same emotion as this does here.
No worries. I'm just used to more drama light. But my way isn't the highway.
Are the lights
One: behind you
Two: way off on the right, parallell? (or however you spell that)
Im just having trouble figuring the lighting ratio out.
Only 2 lights... one camera right and one camera left behind the model to light the background. There is only one light on the model.
Who is the client and what is the concept? If you want to know what I think; I would say you need a lot more contrast.

It was just for the fun of it. And I was kind of going for some type of Calvin Kline look... not exactly but something somewhat similar.
Keep in mind that Calvin Klein ads and fashion in general are selling a feeling.
Concentrate on the light falling on and off the model and her features. I like the mood and the style, but the light seems a little a directionless.
Try setting the light with no modifiers. Look at the shadows and highlights it makes. Look at the areas that are accentuated and the shapes it produces. Then add modifiers or additional lights and bounce cards to produce the effect you want.
