    Not a bad set! I think your key light was a touch hot however; there's some excessive specular highlighting especially on the cheeks. I'm not fan of the fake "toothy" smile in #1, and avoid posing subjects, especially females quite so square to the camera.

    hi, thanks for comments. As you probably have already seen, I posted a thread on the other photo website and it seems there are much more traffice there. See you on the other side and look forward to you posting pics.

    I agree with tirediron about it being a little hot. Also you may want to flag the light you have for the hair, I think it may be making your photos a little soft.

    Thanks for comments. I think using a flash meter will help me to control the exposure the images much better.

    Yep a little hot on the key light...and maybe back off a little on the fill for some differential - and they do look a little stiff. If you want hair to look like it's blowing or moving then get the model to whip her hair up and down a little... it usually provokes unforced smiles too which is always better.
