A good light for normal portraits BUT:

The Joker is a very dark personality, and should be portraied as such. Maybe you should've gone with a black background instead of the white one. My Input on this one would be the following:

- underexpose it so that you can work with highlights
- highlight the cheecks and especially the eyes
- your Modell should look angry, not lost

Just my two cents!

Hello Moritz
Thank you, I'm still amateur and need some comment such as yours, it will help me a lot.
I would like to do what you say next time when I get really studio lights, because I'm still a beginner and I have only 2 old/new Speedlites and I donøt have black bagrund, and he'm not angry because the picture was just testing:) the real image is on my deviantar (link below)
thanks for your helpful:) Now I'm a better photographer: P

... Well, you don't need Studiolights to light a small scene (in my honest opinion). I work with two Metz Flashguns (48 and 58 AF-1), and it works just fine! I've got some "Strobist"-Tutorials on my Website, maybe you wan't to check them out!
