Im practicing using my lights on my boyfriend, how did I do? Camera setting was on aperture priority f/2.2 iso 200. I used 2 soft boxes. I like it but maybe thats because hes my boyfriend and I think he looks really cute! lol. I converted it to black and white. Let me know what you think, thanks.

1 black and white conversion.

first off if you are using studio lights you should be shooting on manual and not aperture priority, use camera cannot meter for off camera flash

lovely totally sharp image, really draws one in.

It may be my strong tendency to get seasick but the off-vertical of the subject bothers me.
I would also suggest darkening all the whites in his shirt, the surround and his hands so his face is the brightest thing in the picture.
Right now it is vying for attention with a lot of bright spots.

All in all a very, very nice image.

I re cropped this, I didnt realise how wonky it was untill you pointed it out Lew, thanks for the advice. Im tempted to get rid of the white in the t shirt all together but thats maybe a tommorow job, its getting late here in Aberdeen!
