This is my first set of lights. Still have a lot to learn. I thought I would share the pictures I did and see what you think?

Very nice, Judging by the photos I don't think you have to much more to learn.

Those are some nice shots.... just one tip that came to mind on the first one. You are getting some shadows on the backdrop with that one. You want to either move the subject further away from the backdrop, and/or raid the lights up higher so that they cast the shadow down behind the subject so that you can't see them. A combination of one or both will help you clear the shadows, which can be hard to get rid of in photoshop later. Otherwise, you have some very creative shots there.

I also edited your post to make the attachments show inline. If you want them to look that way, the best thing to do is post them into our free gallery first, and then when you view the image in the gallery you just need to copy/paste the 'BBCode" into a forum post and they'll show inline. This also allows you to have all your images viewable in the gallery.

I agree there are shadows. I tried to reduce them. Thanks for the tips I will try that next time.

As for my set up I am using 2 Savage CM-250. Just like the one on the link.

I also have 2 backdrops white and black.
