A friend of mine asked for some pics, here's how they turned out.

Used 1 off camera light.

C&C appreciated :)

They look pretty good in 1-6, but I wish you'd looked for a better background.

Thanks for your input! I wish the shoot was in a different location as well, but it was chosen by him.

What if you had moved a few inches to the left in #2? ; )

I'm sorry but I'm quite new to these kind of shoots, so what should I have avoided in the background that could be solved by moving to the left? Covering the lamp with my subject?

Thanks for your constructive criticism :-)

Yes. For instance, in #4 you have a pole growing out of his helmet, too.
As for "I wish the shoot was in a different location as well, but it was chosen by him.", it's part of your job take control of the job. You either make the clients idea work, or educate him as to why it doesn't. That's the difference between photography & snapshots, no? ; )

In number 3 I'd like it better if his helmet was off. It would be nice to see the person's face.

Number 6 doesn't work for me at all.

Thanks a lot for your replies, I will work on that in the future!
