    I finally had a chance to practice on someone besides my kids... These are all natural light. I can look up the settings if anyone is interested. I would love any and all feedback! Since he is not mine, feel free to let me have it -- no way you could hurt any feelings here! :)

    I like #1 and #5 the best.

    #2 looks odd, like he's floating in space, since there's no point of reference as to the fact that he's lying on something.

    When looking at 6 and 7, I prefer the color version as it looks softer. :)

    Nice job.

    I'm interested in knowing the settings you used. Also, what did you use for a backdrop?

    Thanks!

    Thank you all for the nice comments! I am working on learning to use flash, but natural light is by far my favorite right now.

    LucyDarling- The backdrop is a (washable) black fleece blanket that I draped over the back and seat of a couch. We put a waterproof pad under the blanket to protect the couch in case of accidents during the naked shots.

    These were all natural light, manual exposure. My settings were:
    #1 SS 1/125, f3.2, ISO 800, 50 mm focal length.
    #2 SS 1/80, f4.0, ISO 800, 50 mm focal length.
    #3 SS 1/125, f3.2, ISO 800, 50 mm focal length.
    #4 SS 1/100, f2.8, ISO 800, 50 mm focal length.
    #5, #6, #7- SS 1/125, f3.2, ISO 800, 50 mm focal length.

    I like these. Although, in #1 he looks more cold than peaceful. I don't know why. But, awsome photos!
