    It is a nice portrait, but the light/processing is a bit off. For instance, the black t-shirt disappears into the shadows which is a nuisance (to me at least ;) )

    @smoke665 I been aiming to get something like that...just have not gotten around to it yet!

    Wasn't sure about the wattage...but since you suggested 90 watt will go with that!

    Thanks!

    That was the first one I found, I'd go higher if they have it. Another thing since the lights are relatively inexpensive is to experiment with the different color temperatures the lights come in. For example drop to one of the warmer temperatures in the orange range, and change you WB in camera to tungsten and to get an icy, cool look, or use one in the blue range, set your camera to cloudy, and everything lit by the light will appear neutral, while the rest of the scene will be warm.
