Taken in my studio while contact juggling. Had to get creative with an umbrella-as-reflector since one of my lights stopped working. Overall, I'm happy with the lighting. I needed to burn a bit on my arm as it was a bit too bright. I'm predicting a 5.4.

Looks like you predicted a little low. I like the lighting also. I think you done a fabulous job with it. Nice focus on yourself. I can really see all the detail in your hair and that is always a plus. Also the eyes are really nice and crisp. I like the fact that you have a little motion blur on the ball and your hand to show movement. The background was a good choice also. Also the colros are right where they need to be. And by that I mean there aren't any harsh red hues in your skin and the color is right on.

My intellectual side wants to say that the hand and sphere are out of focus and a tad bit to close to the edge of the frame but the color, composition, lighting and expression capture is great. Nicely done.

Very nice, Terry! I like the soft directional lighting, just wish we could see a bit more expression/personality in the shot.

Clever and competent. To be able to capture the essence of your subject is a sign of a good photographer, but to be able to capture the essence of yourself is a sign of a good person. Class act, Terry, on both sides of the lens. 8.

I like the strong teal color of your shirt contrasting against a soft plain white background. Good composition and focus (except is the ball motion blurred a little?). Good catchlights in your eyes too.

You look like you work at Microsoft or something, Terry-sir. :-D

Very very very well lit. Nice, simple and clean.

May be impossible and take 1,000 more tries but your hand seems a little bit motion-blurred and also blown out from the light.

9, good luck. :-)
