It's OK, but I think you need two more... a fill and a background light.
i got my lighting kit the day before yesterday ive literally been researching and learning and reading and practicing with willing friends for basically 72 hours haha
yeah ur right, my budget could only allow me to have my 2 light kit at the moment. ill get more soon.. im wondering if i can make a similar portrait background in photoshop
Well... it's more than putting in a portrait background. It's more about separating your subject from the background, giving the image some depth.
As for a fill light to put some detail in the shadow areas, you could get by with a large reflector.... maybe a 4x8 piece of foamcore.
BTW... what strobes did you get?
Impact WX100a MKII nothing special but its all i could afford. it was a really nice kit. two stands, two mono lights, two shoot through umbrellas, two soft boxes
