Just got this qbox 24 and so far, this thing is really nice. Definitely getting what I was looking for. Now I jsut need to learn to use it and get my focus right for self portraits.. These are all from one pics. Just a few little changes and some crops. Let me know what you think.. Thanks

I would rather see the camera location square to the wood paneling, I'm not sure if the AF is really nailing your eyes.

The bottom cropping on all 3 is not the best.....nice shots otherwise. You might try adding some light on the left side just to compare.

I did know about that thread. It is pretty much what convinced me to get this softbox. I just wanted to post in here to get some feedback on the shots.

Chauncey, I am pretty sure that my knee is what is in focus. I am still trying to figure out the best way to do focus by myself. I will get it...

And the cropping, the bad cropping is bad composition for the first one. and the others are jsut bad crop job. Where should I crop them? Thanks

Consider the source. I am a horrible portrait photographer. But I have always understood to not crop through the middle of a limb. In your case the leg. I would have left some open space below your leg. Hopefully, some others that know what they are talking about will chime in here.

For me the tilted background still works because your subjects torso is vertical.

The background is gonna have to work, but it doesnt bother me the way that it is anyhow. The bottoms of those boards aren't exactly square so they are just leaning the way they want to.. Not worth it to me to maneuver those huge board to the miter saw to straighten them out.

I like #2 but I would have cropped it just above the jeans on your left leg. I like the sloping board background. For #1 I would have either cropped just above the axle of the chair or shot it with your whole right shoe visible.
