    so these are the kids of some of my families friends. they happen to own several of melnakovs paintings and prints, one of which reminded them of their son (the one with the doors). after hearing this i took this picture of that son in a very similar way.

    I love the first! I would be more fond of the second if he wasn't wearing such an era-specific shirt? Does that sound stupid? I guess I just am a big sucker for timeless attire in photographs.

    thanks everyone, and daniel, both using existing in house lights.

    the last one i just put him right next to/under a lamp (you can see the base of it far left) and in the first one there were lights on the walls on either sides of the doors, and i added a little fill with my id light.

    The first view is VERY nice.... setting, expression, model, framing... pretty much everything.
