    lol! thanks for the tip, i'll have to post for critique in the nude section next time! :lol:

    i like your expressions in the pictures, looks like you were having fun playing around with the lighting! keep it up! I really like the effect of the beauty dish, that gives off some nice light... gives the picture kind of a Masterpiece Theatre feel to it... now if you only had a derby and a pipe...

    I like the last photo. Although I think I would like it more if the shirt didn't have large, distracting letters and numbers on it as it distracts me from taking the photo in as a whole. The majority of these seem pretty dark. I'm no expert with lighting so I can't give you any qualified advice, sorry.
    I'd like to see a re-shoot of the last one with the subject dressed up like George Washington or something. :lol:

    Ditch the lamp. Otherwise the first and last ones are really well executed.

    lighting on 1st and last is great.

    Thanks for great feedback guys. Yeah I got a few other people not liking the shirt lettering. Guess it would make a good A.E. Ad thou haha.

    Yeah i was kinda bummed about the clutter too =/

    Originally i wanted a really edgy feel so i went wit the rim lights and all but then i deceided to shoot just rims, then just key to show people how all the lighting comes together, but then i really liked the just beauty dish shot, also relaxed the mood my facial expression for that one

    Good work dude. Now, change the wardrobe. Go find a cheap-o tweed 3 piece suit from a Goodwill/Value Village/whatever they call thrift stores where you live.
