    I like the idea, but my opinion is, that the right side of the face is too dark, there could be some difference between backround and face.

    You have some nice shapes and tones. Good approach starting minimal. I wold definitely kick in a bounce.

    I actually tried having a fill from camera right through an umbrella at low power but it wasnt going with the look I wanted of the dark right side, maybe a slight back light even? I should've tried that.

    i really like it!
    i haven't tried strobes yet but i'm not such my result would be this dramatic!
    the shadows are effective & yes, maybe the face is too dark and blends in with the background...but i like it!! nice job :)
    cute pout too ;)

    White bristol board or if you like spending money a proper reflector, start at about 2 feet away and than 3 feet and than 4. You can keep the shadow effect well making some stuff visible, like an eye.
