    Very cute expressions. I am not a fan of tilting but it works in the last one. All look very clear and crisp they are just soooo dark behind and around the kiddo.

    Nope, not much. i shot slightly under exposed to keep the towel black and then tweeked the exposure and fill lights in lightroom to get what i wanted.

    Cute kid, but way underexposed. You can achieve the effect of keeping the towel dark and still have him exposed properly by pulling him out a little farther from the background. Also, try some kind of diffuser with your lights so that you dont get any deep shadows on his neck or face. Also, its been said already, but a kicker light would separate him from the background nicely. Keep trying. :)
