    It's OK, but I think you need two more... a fill and a background light.

    Well... it's more than putting in a portrait background. It's more about separating your subject from the background, giving the image some depth.

    As for a fill light to put some detail in the shadow areas, you could get by with a large reflector.... maybe a 4x8 piece of foamcore.
