Seeking C&C on a headshot/ portrait shoot I did a little earlier. This is some of my first portrait work and the first time using a two flash setup.

camera shutter speed near max sync speed to kill fluorescent ambients
1 YN 468 Key light in shoot through umbrella camera left approximately 45 Degrees and slightly elevated. It was triggered by YN 603 radio trigger
1 Neewer 560 on light stand mounted low against white back wall to hopefully provide some gradient in slave mode triggered by key flash
white wall wall to camera right providing some reflection for fill
This is a variation of the Head shot in a corner described in strobist 101. I volunteered to take the photos of the employee of the month recipient in hopes to get some practice with speed lights and a (reasonably) willing model.
I moved the model about 6-8 feet from back wall and umbrellas flash was pretty close to model to hopefully use the inverse square law to keep the key from bleeding onto the back wall too much. The flash on the back wall was placed maybe 8-12 inches off the wall and maybe 2 foot off the ground and aimed slightly toward it to try and rake some light on the plain white wall.
This is my first portrait attempt with 2 speed lights.
Any points for learning or additional thoughts.
