Nice shot Jonathan. Good pose. Good lighting depending on the look you're going for. A little blown out and some wrapping of the lighting onto the model, but that's the look these days for lots of fashion shots and I use that technical a lot. Or you can power down those background lights to elimate the blownout look. I usually do F11 on the subject and about F16 for the background to get good exposure w/o blowing out the background or getting an overspill of light on the model. Try different light outputs and techniques. Try a sheet of white tileboard for full body shots; adds a nice reflection.

Oh, and one other thing; hey, you did say you wanted LOTS of feedback ( : Noticed your ISO setting. 9/10 I set mine to the lowest; 100 and adjust the power on the strobes. That way you don't get much noise from using a higher ISO. Easily fixed in processing, but easier to just use the lowest ISO possible for studio shots and use the strobe power to get the look you want. Just realized you're both the photog and model. Nice self portrait man.

Thanks a lot Mark, I will Definitly look into more light and less ISO. Yes, I noticed that I get some spill light.. I just started learning and have not taken any courses it's just trying and learning off of forums. But thank you for the info and for the boost. It's one of my first few attempts.
