Default My first "real" portrait session, please give som critique

Hi guys!

I just had a friend over for some a real shooting session, this is my first time ever shooting like this, and first time ever I've eperimented with my flashes on people, and made my own litle studio at home =)

I like it as well but on the 3rd I find the chain somewhat distracting BUT you are doing a great job

All great! Excellent work especially at keeping the glare out of the glasses (Polarizer???).

I just don't know why not many more people are using flashes... Theses are just fantastic tools that some folks just refuse to touch!!!

I agree. Portraits are easier to do when you can control the power and direction of light, which flashes allow you to do. Natural light is great, but you can't always point it where you want it when you want it
