    They are just shoots, nothing special in it.

    The lighting looks a bit dark to me, but that's just my opinion. Otherwise, a great set of photos.

    Thanks txphotog, i probally should of put this in the beginner forum since i was mainly looking for a lighting critque... My lighting set up was 2 clip on shop lights from Home Depot with 120 bright white bulbs... 1 on a ladder the other on the top of a trash can, i also used the vivitar 383 flash on my camera... the back drop was a blue baby blanket held up by to 2 foot collapsable tables leaning against the wall..... this is my ghetto lighting studio lol

    the lighting is pretty even i would say, maybe too dark tho. But it overall lacks pop, seems more like a set up for passport photo's which need very even light. keep playing around, move the lights around, bounce one off something coloured? and change the background.
