    Very nice...great job on the lighting. The tonality of the background might be a bit too close to the skin tones of the subject, but that's questionable. Overall, I think it's fantastic. Let's see some more!

    (And welcome to TPF!!!!!!)

    Welcome -Jay- !

    I'm really digging your portraits .. the tones and colours and the way they mesh REALLY work for me in the first and the 2nd one works really well for me as well!

    Again welcome and keep 'em coming! :mrgreen:

    Excellent stuff. I really love the b/w, esp the bit of reflection off the background/flooring. I love her feet crossed in the next one. She's got a bit of a funny thing going on with her mouth, it seems like. But the pose is exceptional (and the model is just a little hot. ;) )

    Lighting is actually pretty easy, as long as you've got that ability to see the scene as though it was through the camera. Getting the exposure right so that the image matches what you see in your mind without blown out areas, lost shadows, etc....now that's the hard part! :D
