    This is my other cousin, i made use of some shade next to the house, and not in direct sunlight. If i was to do it again i would of used some kind of reflector on the left hand side to bounce some light onto that side of his face. Obviously the pose isn't the best but there was no compromising with him, he wouldn't take that finger out his mouth.

    Let me know what you guys think.

    Thanks,
    Jamie.

    I'd say it's good you didn't use a reflector. Had you brought the light up on that side, there would be little definition to the shape of his head and could look odd. I would maybe add a touch of warmth to it too, just to make the skin tone more natural.

    Thank you for the comments!

    Thanks you for the C&C, i went ahead and added some warmth to give a more natural skin tone, i think it looks better with this edit done to it, i'd love to here you second view on it.

    I think he looks better but he's now starting to blend with the background. It looks like you could easily bring the exposure down behind him a bit to better separate the two.
