Here is a before and after of a photo I took of my handsome son yesterday. Tricky taking photos of a teen who can't put his phone down. lol. I've been practicing a lot with my Speedlite lately. Also shooting in manual with these newest photos...not so much that I wanted to learn that mode. Just seemed to work best for the settings I wanted. I've found that manual isn't as scary as I thought. Thoughts would be appreciated. Thank you.

Personally, I think they're nice shots, but I'm not a fan of the photoshopped background on #2. I would also try adjusting the contrast.

Thank you for your comments. My son also commented that the background looked photoshopped. And I see that his face is too bright in #2

I'm with David, I like picture one. Just maybe a little tighter crop.

Might try blurring the background. That would make it more natural looking and less distracting.

Pose and lighting look great

I agree w/ blurring the background but the color matching is off to me as well. The purple background and then the reds/oranges in the cheeks don't work so well with it.

I took a quick stab at it, removed some red/orange in LR and then did the rest in PS...color matched to the background and a few other adjustments including a touch of lightening of the eyes.
Just my take on it from a small jpg.

Very nice. I can see that in mine, his skin is too pink, not matching with the background. I also brightened his face too much.

My umbrella arrived today so I'm going to try to trap my boys into taking photos after school. This will be my first time using one so I'm excited to play with lighting. So far only been using my diy softbox
