My first real attempt at portrait lighting, and the first shot is my 10 y/o granddaughter Geya clowning around while I set up the lighting.
A tad off center and I'm not crazy about the position of her left wrist, but over all I'm happy with the results. Still working on getting the framing thing right.

What studio lighting are you using??

The 2nd shot is great....however (this could be due to downsampling), the photos are not as sharp as they look.

The expression on the first one is great. But the second one is a winner. Lovely smile.

Thanks for the compliments, my lighting is pretty low tech. A couple work lights, main diffused through a sheet of rip-stop nylon, a smaller one for a hairlight, and luck. PP with Photoshop Elements.
It is a little soft, I should have put the camera on the tripod for a little less hand shake.

And thank you Bruce, if these are even a fraction as good as I've seen posted here, I'm happy. I've finished working on the others I took, so I'll post this one as well... Tyler, 8

Very nice images Shelly. You have a very good eye and a nice technique with the PhotoShop retouching.

These are very nice, The only thing I see wrong is the mottling of the skin tones in #2.
