One of the first shots I got from my 650D with 50mm 1.4
Just getting into photography so all criticism is taken on board.

With a name like that I gather you want him to look imposing.

First of all, fill the frame with him. Make him look really in your face. Secondly, get down low. Waist height or something. Looking up at people makes them look imposing. Thirdly, a bit of light onto his body would be nice, his shirt is turning into an inky black blob.

Thanks Tiberius!
This was shot out of my dorm room door into his. More spur of the moment "gotcha!"

Welcome to POTN, Andyking!
Just a quick edit... Simplify - remove distractions such as the desk clutter and the light above his head, and the light patch on the roof in the background. Just my 2c :)

Thanks PJay,
Love the edit! Might have to start getting a bit more creative with my own edits from now on.
