I took this last night and thought it was not bad. I was wondering if you all (who have been doing this longer) thought the same. I tried to get his eyes focused but he would not sit still. He wasnt too happy with me, thats for sure. I took it with kit lens but am about to buy a 50mm (while hubby isnt looking)...

Looks a little underexposed and would be better if there were a light behind his right shoulder to give a little more separation with the bg.

Did you use any modifiers over the light source? It looks a bit harsh to me - I'd like to see if with softer light to cut some of the sharpest out of those shadows.

a white light source at the back and a reflector at the front would lift this shot a lot.
