1. In which area is critique or feedback to be given?
Composition, exposure and angle. Also by default my setting for the camera would be 1/160 for exposure and f 5.6. It seems that when i'm firing under this setting, it seems hard to get the lock for auto focus (the *TEET*) Is it just me, or do studio shooters normally do a manual focusing?
2. Thread-starter's personal thoughts about the image.
I don't have a back light yet, so that would explain some of the background looking grey. Also i don't own a light meter, so the ratio to two strobe flash would be roughly estimation of 2:1 for most of the time. This is my small room home studio powered by two strobe flash, octagon softbox as my key and a rectangular softbox as my fill.
