    In my commercial studio lighting class we had models come in, and I was pretty happy with some of my results and feel I've learned quite a bit already. Here are a few. Constructive Criticism is welcome.

    She's a natural model. I loved how this one came out. This was with two huge softboxes.

    I also love how this one came out. This was also with two huge softboxes.

    This was with a hair light. I love how I managed to get some separation with his hat and the background.

    This is high key lighting and I love how it came out. Those are ashes on her forehead, it was Ash Wednesday, and she asked me to leave them in.

    My friend brought her little girl in to model for my class. This one was background lighting. I edited it a little, stray hairs, and edited my friend's shoulder out.

    This setup was ambient mixed with natural light. I love how this one came out, especially the bright colors. Her eyes are amazing!!

    Sorry for so many, I sometimes get carried away. :D

    Your lighting looks really good. It really pops.

    I get the feeling these photos were taken on Ash Wednesday. Looks like she went to church sometime before the shoot.
