I like your choice of black and white. It gives strength to all the pictures.

The quilted pattern is unique in that it can be said to be directing the eye back to the pictures aboveto get another view. Well done.

How are you lighting these shots? I don't do people shots but am being asked to shoot some and it scares the begeebers out of me....

P.S. I shoot landscapes and people see them and ask me to do parties and stuff... they don't understand the differences between these efforts.

Very simple really

I shoot maternity & newborn clients in-home so have to work with space & light they have. I have been trying to avoid buying continuous lights for this reason, working ok for me so far. In the first shot I turned off all the lights, added dark brown velvet backdrop clamped on their drapery rods.Used the 580ex plus a Lumiquestmini-softbox, that thing is my new best friend! The focus beam assist of the speedlite+USMwork together fabulously.

You should check kenmck's inspirational setup out. In the 2nd shot I did add a 100w tungsten bulb in one of those hardware store clamp lamps to give it a more high-key effect.
