Hi GlenL,
I wanted to start studio set up( not on professional scale,as an hobbist)Could you please give me a bit of "rundown" or nay web site where amature or hobbiest give me some idea or whole concept
To give an idea of my room size is 10' by 12'(approx) and roof is at about 8' to 8 1/2' (approx).would like to prefer to start with one light system then slowly develop as I get the feel for it .

MCLIU: Off of the main forum, there's a forum called "Studio lighting, flash and other"towards the top. Within that forum, the very first post is a permanent post, and it has TONS of links that will give you a good start on studios setup. You could spend a few days reading all of the information contained within that single post! Enjoy!

I got all the info I needed from the links posted in studio and lighting forum, I printed out what I needed and away I went, I'm not a pro yet, I'm still in the learning curve.

I think you are underexposing all your shots man. this particular one has a more or less correct exposure on the top right ear where a spot light is hitting . the rest of the photo is severely underexposed. Thus image looks duller then it should. The skin tones should look brilliant under studio lights if exposed properly.

either increase the light, or open up the apperture or increase ISO. You can tweak exposure if you shoot RAW but it is best to get it right when you shoot.
when you just starting it is a good idea to buy a light/flash meter. Use it to set up your lights power and set the exposure properly.

I did no postprocessing. Just increased exposure by 1.7 EV in Adobe Lightroom.

I agree about the underexposure, but I wasn't quite sure what the goal was here.

Does your strobe have some kind of spotlight modifier? Is that what you were testing?

Ok I should have mentioned I was going for the natural look rather than blasted in lighting,I know thats the right way, and I did underexpose this inPS. But that's ok your always welcome to give me your suggestions.
