My husband and I were fooling around in the studio and decided to play with one light set ups. In some we used a reflector, but we tried to keep it to the minimum and really create some hard shadows for his photos. so what do you think? do they work?

2&3 work great for me!

#1 just looks kinda awkward to me... not enough detail in the other half of the face. and it looks like he has three fingers :P

you know I never saw that before...lol...I don't know where his other fingers went, because I can see the edge of his sweater. He must of tucked them in.

I prefer the setup in the second one, with the blue background it just looks better. The first one is too darck on his right, seems like there should be a better hint of his right eye in the shadows to provoke the mystery. Composition looks good and he's giving you a nice serious look, as though he's ready to take it to a new level ;)

Thanks for sharing these and keep up the good work, nice to have the ideas of others for inspiration!

I really like #1, it just needs a little bit of light on the other side, not much you still want it to be mostly dark, but enough that it doesn't look like half his face was cut off. I love the lighing on the right side though.

I really like #4, but do not like the position of his right hand.

I don't care for #1 because of the fingers as others have already mentioned. #2 seems too flat for me. Now #4... that picture is a definate winner for me. I love the contrast and shadows of it. I'm not sure what to think about the positioning of the right hand, but it doesn't take away from the fact that I still like this picture!


I need a catchy sig? Ehhh, I've got nothing...
