i'm hoping to apply critiques to another maternitysession tomorrow morning....i swear there is something in the water here!

I'm on a learning curvetrying to use my newstrobes (a 580ex and an oldsunpak slave) and I am still exploring the best way to fire these manually. For candids Ibounce the 580 on-camera and the ETTL does all the work for me. But, I just don't have enough technical knowledge to do anything but fly by the seat of my pants in shots like #5. WhichobviouslyI overexposed. Input would be appreciated. I feel like I'm setting up too little and shooting too much.

ALSO, I'm struggling with eliciting consistently good "serious" expressions. I tried the "look down, look up" schpiel and it worked ok, but I can't keep repeating that for an hour! I realize most of your subjects are professional models, but mine aren't, and I am having trouble getting them to relax without looking like a deer in headlights.
