My husband bought me a strobe light with softbox. It came with no instructions, so I've been playing around with it. I also don't have a lightmeter yet, so I was trying to manually get correct exposure. Any critique or advice on this specific photo would be appreciated.

When I checked the EXIF information, I was at f/8, 1/250, ISO 3200. I don't think the ISO should need to be that high. Any general lighting advice would also be appreciated.
