    1st one the punk is not in the center. 2nd one is not bad the accessories are not in focus. A lot of glare on the boots. Did you use a softbox ?

    It looks like theres a lot of noise in the 2nd pics BG, or is there something going on with your backdrop?

    Damn, people go way too far / put in too much effort to be "different" these days..

    Very nice, very subtle color coordination of his wardrobe and hair colors and the background color in these two shots. I wish #1 were centered and more symmetrical. As another poster said, the out of focus nature of his boots and accessories in #2 is a bit distracting.

    :irked: I knew to crop #1. Forgot

    As for the BG. I used a velvet type of fabric that I bought from the fabric store, on sale at $4 a sq yard?. It doesn't really wrinkle and things don't stick to it. depending on the way of the fabric it looks like different shades.

    Thanks for the replies. Going to use a soft box and shoot just those boots. I can really see what you mean with the glare and it is distracting.

    Lighting and tones are pleasing in the second one.

    The model is lacking emotion imo. Which is kind of funny because I can almost hear him talking to himself "Im so dark and emo... how's my hair?"

    I think playing with the contrast would have a negative effect on the tones. However, the glare on the boots has been fixed.
