    They all look good for me except #5.......They way they are lit isnt flattering to either subject IMHO.

    Not too bad I would say. So this is a home studio with one strobe and backdrop?

    I really like #1 and #2-#4 ..... you said on #1 you had two strobes shooting at backdrop and only one centered on them ..... wow .... i suck and doing this, lol i cant get it to come out this way with just one on them and two on backdrop ....

    Where exactly do you have the one centered and where are you shooting from?

    Thanks

    I think you did a good job on these. My only nitpicks are #4 & #5. It looks as if his right hand is chopped off in #4 and #5 has an annoying shadow on the right side of his face. Overall, very nice!

    Thanks guys. yeah that shadow on his face was annoying me too.. maybe i'll try a little bit of fill or maybe a reflector next time i try a shot like that.




    well the 2 strobe i have shooting the backdrop to blow it out. and for the center light i had a huge octogon softbox set 2 stops lower than the backdrop and the softbox was behind me up and angled down. i wanna say that the softbox is about 3-4 ft wide.. im not really sure but its huge!
