Once again, helpful critiques please. My friends have been kind enough to pose for me as I learn my lights.

In terms of lighting, I'd say (in my non-authoritative opinion) that you're getting along nicely. That being said, #1 is pretty hot on her forehead. Not knowing your setup, I don't know what the exact solution is. It strikes me that perhaps you're shooting fairly wide open (which, in my experience, can cause some "burn" and exacerbate hotspots on the skin) or your source is perhaps too direct and too close.

A few other items though:

On #1: The skin on her face is almost muddy and flat, it's so smoothed out. Perhaps some of the above mentioned hotspots could be caused by oversmoothing, over lightening and over blurring. That extreme degree of "waxation" of the skin contrasts much too sharply with how sharp and clear her eyes, mouth, and hair are. It's as if she's wearing a transparent mask. Thank you for having her hands visible, while they're in her hair (not a "rule," just a pet peeve).

#2: I have nothing of major import to say here, I REALLY like it (and I'm not a fan of the dreamy/foggy look). It's a tad underexposed for my taste (for that particular setup), but I can clearly see where you're headed with that shot. While, IMO, there is room for improvement, I think you got where you wanted to go with it.

#3: I can see almost every healing brush dollop on her face and neck. I Love the mask, great crop, angle, and use of space. I'm not sure of the solution to better blending of the repair areas, but perhaps calibrating your monitor (if it isn't) or selecting a larger/softer brush with less opacity/flow rate would help that...

Cheers and keep shooting!

Exactly what I needed. Thanks for the critique and time spent looking at my photos. I am learning photoshop so yes, I do realize I am a bit too strong on the face...Need to tone that down a bit.

Thanks,
Mark

Only going to add one more thing.....as I'm still basically a newbie here. In #3, it looks like her eyes are out of focus. The mask looks pin sharp but the eyes have a bit of a blur to them. Might just be me. Others have commented on some of my images, and told me to watch the eyes especially if your using autofocus as the lens might not be focusing on the eyes. Just my $0.02

Keep shooting,
Dean

I'll just mention that #1 & #3 are way too magenta, I think you need to go into selective colors and dial it down a bit. I really like #2.
