    Hi there
    Please take a look at this portrait. I think it is not bad but I need your opinion.
    Thanks

    Looks good! It also looks like your lighting from both sides and above, so I'm guessing you've got more than one of those SB600's? Nice work with the lighting though.

    That is a really good picture he should have smiled, or held two plastic gums like he was about to draw

    Yeah, not a bad shot at all. Looks like 4 lights maybe to me. Looks like a square softbox was your key light camera right, an umbrella light to camera left as the fill, a bg light and probably a hair light as well, or maybe that was from the key light?

    At any rate, I think it works. Everyone knows a gunslinger never smiles ;)

    Well done. My only nit is his neck is a little to hot and distracting for my taste.
