    I am just getting into portrait photography and have yet to purchase any lighting, so this was shot with ambient light.
    Honest opinions please.
    Thanks.;)

    ...a little ironing would go a long way.

    Cute little fella. I would try and iron out those wrinkles, or for about $40, you can get some seamless paper and not have to worry about it. I can't tell if this was a white sheet or a gray one. If you have a white sheet and try to do a high key portrait, the background comes out looking muddy gray if you don't properly light it. So if this was a white background, you need about 2 stops more light on the background as the subject. Also, it would work better if you shot the portrait in portrait orientation rather than landscape.

    I agree with johnboy2978, get some seamless paper and forget about wrinkles. Try sitting him a little closer to the background and removing the wrinkles. I think you would get a better portrait.
