I do shoot a ton of sports for my son's school but haven't done any type of fitness shoots until tonight. One of his teammates wanted some workout shots and I thought it would be fun. CC is welcome.

maybe if he put more weight on his hands than his legs there could be more definition in his arms

Thank you for the idea Ryan. I think that would add some great muscle definition to the shot.

The reason that most of these sports portraits are lit for both sides in addition to the rim effect is that you maintain symmetry. The combination of the slight offset of his arm placement and inconsistent shadows on his shoulders makes him appear lopsided.

very good observation! thanks for the tips. I shot with two 580's but I though keeping one side with just a tad fill would be cool. I do see what you are saying about throwing off symmetry.
