Kareem is another guy at my high school. He's crazy good on the piano, so this is what we came up with. What do you all think? CC welcome!

Ey i like it! sweet lighting, and i really like the composition. I do think it might be stronger if he was looking at the camera though.

Nice shot, although the reflection above him is distracting.

Charl1e, I'm not totally sure on the processing, but here you go:)

Spiiral, ok, I'll have to try cloning it out to see how it looks.

The composition and processing on the first is great. The lighting is good overall, but the rim lighting looks a bit bright. The pose does look more suited to being seated as a desk rather than a piano. I have to agree about the reflection being distracting.

The second one isn't as strong as the first. The rim lighting is even hotter here because of the angle of his head. The processing on the first is much better.

First one is awesome. I wouldn't remove the reflection, but just darken it a bit.

I agree on the lighting, this is the first portrait shoot I did using only artificial lights & I only had 2 continuous light soft boxes & I couldn't change the light output or move that rim light any further back.

Charl1e, Do you typically shoot w/ continuous lights? I don't have any flashes & the only lights at my school are these continuous lights for their video program. Seriously, that would be tight.

that's what I thought, I've only used them a little for food photography. I seriously want to get a nice OCF system. Ok.
