Are you using bare strobes? You're blowing out detail on her sweater. Also, looks like placement is to her sides and Id move one to a position in front of her to eliminate the shadow on her face.

Start off by just using one light...then, as your lighting knowledge and skill grow, incorporate more into the mix.


Nobody cares about your gear list...

I agree, especially in the first pic ... the front of her sweater is blown out and it's a little hot on her face as well.

In the second one she has hot spots on left side and right side of face with a shadow in the middle.

If it were me, I would do as others suggested starting with one light and turn it down to lowest setting. Take some shots and see what develops, and work up from that. Once you have the single main light mastered, or at least looking good consistently then introduce another light, or better yet shoot the second light by itself to see if it produces what you want, then bring in the first light.

I read a great thread on this forum for setting up multiple light setups.

Along with that Zack Arias thread recommended take a look at this one .....
