    Yeah I'm still a Beginner

    Got my D40 about 3 weeks ago..I try to learn as much as possible.

    I made a flickr to gather all the pictures I like, and then I can see my evolution in a few months :)

    Pretty good start, all 3 portraits are very well composed with perfect lighting.

    And it is great seeing how your shots will evolve in just a few short months of shooting. Shots you thought were great before become mediocre, and you'll be able to see how much you've progressed and learned in a short period of time. I know I need to go back in my Flickr in delete quite a few shots that just aren't as great as I thought they were when I initially took them several months ago.

    Keep up the good work, you seem to have a good eye for portrait photography :thumbup:

    As someone who has no clue on how to do portait lighting, I'm very curious to know what you used.

    That is a good start. And like Campbell said you will get pickier as, you advance. We all do because we are our own worst critics.

    You'll probably laugh but the 3rd one was done just with an overhead light in my living room..

    The one is the stairs was just a tabletop lamp that I put to light myself..
    Haha

    Better than my first three shots using my D200... lol

    The lighting setup is easy:

    #1 - Ambient light

    #2 - lightsource below and centered to the subject

    #3 - lightsource centered and above the subject.

    If you look at the shadows, it gives it away almost every time.
