Angle your lighting..seems quite flat....if your using two...lower the power on one..

Thanks for that, I'd love to get more atmosphere in there.

I don't have any 'official' lighting, just a strong standard 'uplighter' lamp.

So it's just that and the 380EX flash on my camera. I've got to try and be realistic I think and not get too intricate with limited equipment.

Its important to be aware of the details (clutter) in the scene when you compose it in the viewfinder. Both of your photos are filled with clutter type items. For example #1 has the wall plugs showing in the lower left. #2 has that same problem but adds the radio. These are distracting elements.
The poses in both cases are somewhat awkward. #1 makes the model's neck and chin look odd. THe wall poster behind in #1 is distracting and conflicts with the model. Both images are a bit soft. #2's pose makes her foot the center of attention.



Cheers,
rfs

Thanks again for the comments,

I was aware of the clutter issues, but overlooked them at the time, It's good to get confirmation that they mess things up.

Comments much appreciated and will take them into account tomorrow. Will hopefully post results.

PKP.

Nice picture!

Agree with Don. Be careful with lighting (in both). In the fist one: the picture on the wall (right behind the head) is distracting. The second one, "focus" more on the face.

Try using natural light (through a window, door, etc) and the on-camera flash for shadow fill. That might offer more difference between the two light soucres giving you more contouring shadows. Just a thought.

Regardless, considering what you are using, those are a solid base to build from.

Good luck and keep posting!
