Thank you for the encouragement.

Here are my first two shots (my neighbours). I borrowed my friends lights so I had four in total. Neither shot is perfect but I'd like your C&C so I can improve for the next shoot.

Set up:

This image: Canon 40D, 17-55IS (IS off) set at; 200/s F16 ISO200 (from memory).


This one similar set up but with light D extinguished:



Please let me know what you think (I know what I think I'd just like your ideas).
