Here is an example of a head-shot done with a pair of low cost strobes with umbrellas used as reflectors. I did a little pp to soften the skin and cropped to 8X10 proportions. Any comments?

either my monitor is badly badly calibrated, or this person has some severe medical issue, or your white balance is off....

Ira,

I like it a lot. White balance is definitely fine and so is health of the subject. Nice Try. First attempt of studio shots with the new setup? Studio shotscould be addictive.

I think he means a little too pink.

I think it's because the lights were "cold"-colored, and it gives that that effect, although I might be completely off, I know nothing about practical studio work. No experience with it at all.

I'd try making the image a little warmer, as well as trying a "softening" technique.

I like the way the lighting is done, very correct and the background is good too, no disturbing shadows

The lighting is super nice and even, but the skintone looks super-pink, almost ridiculously so.

Ira, the composition and lighting are excellent. I would have preferred a warmer skin tone (on my monitor it looks very pink)--some red/yellow tones would do it for me. I believe an adjust of the color temperature is what I am talking about. Jay

Here is one with a slight colour shift. BTW the prints were not as pink as the Monitors are showing, guess a little adjustment is in order?

Of course I can always do this (with my eye for colour I probably should stick to black and white anyway):
