    Hi, Just set up the home studio and we are working on lights. All setting the same, just a few minor lighting adjustments.

    I think it's missing front lighting. You're getting too much shade in his face so it takes away from him and directs attention to the background. Your lighting on both of them are good, I would just get a little spotlight more towards the front.

    The first one is better - it works fine. But you might need to adjust the height of the side light to control the shadows. There is one right across his temple from his hair.
    Also watch out for the highlight on the tip of the nose.

    Thank you both. We readjusted after Hobbes and will watch for the shadows as Hertz said.
