You have a really cool and interesting subject. The image on the right is seems underexposed. What was your lighting setup? I am guessing 1 light camera right for pose #1? The other issue is the pose, in conjunction with the lighting setup. What I mean is, with his hand on chin it's casting a unflattereing shadow across his chest. Along with changing the main light you will need to add some fill.

The #2 pose is cool. The tats and physic it works well. What I don't like is the camera angle. You are shooting down on the subject. More flattering straight on.

For both shots, I think you would need to add some back light to separate the subject from the B/G.

Overall I really like the images. I think with a subject like that you would try some more interesting backgrounds other than what you used. Maybe try an abandon building etc...

Hope that helps and look forward to seeing more work from you.

Joe

Thanks for the advice and suggestions. The model wanted more of a dark, edgy feel to the photos, so the wife tried to do it without it casting too many shadows on him.

We did do some photos with graffiti, I've attached a couple for review, hope you like them as well.

Thanks again.

Shadows are not bad. They help create depth perspective. Are you using a key light and a fill light? If so, how are you determining the power levels of each?

Studio ones had 2 strobes, one on either side of him, set at 1/4 power
Outdoor ones were backlit with natural light and added fill flash
