Here is a few that I did this weekend. First time using flash. 2 off camera flashes with umbrellas with manual settings on camera. im too poor to buy ETTL flashes. These were like 15 bucks each at BH. They are also sitting on a dinner table with some white suede fabric on it that i bought at a going out of business fabric store! Tell me what you think...

:thumbup: I mean, it's a good start.:D I dig the exposure in #1, but not #2. I can't give you pointers since all I've only ever used were studio lights with a separate flash meter.

I have to say I'm pretty surprised at the lack of response on these, I was pretty proud of these and thought they turned out almost studio looking.

ive read that if there are no responses that the pictures are just ok and nothing special. so that's kinda a bummer. anyone have any pointers in this case then???

I think the first & last shots are the best ones. You have a nice lighting ratio on her face and nice catchlights. One suggestion would be to move your fill light so that its' catchlight doesn't show up in the eye. I think it looks much better with only one catchlight per eye.
