First studio setup at home
Lens: Pentax 18-55 DA II Camera: K20D Photo Location: home ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/125s Aperture: F5 

Finally got the grand daughter for a little photo shoot. I have 3 Sunpak flashes that I used for this shot. One into a silver umbrella on the left side, one with a silver bounce card on the right and one bounced on white ceiling from the front. This is the first studio type setup I have done. How do you guys think I did? Any idea's for how to posisition the lighting for even better results?

Thanks
Joe

Adorable daughter you have there!
Lighting is OK.
Issues:
1. background color doesn't complement the other ones in the photo.
2. Your color balance is off. Maybe related to the background, but it seems too blue/magenta cast.
3. The first one is less in focus than the second one.

Fixable in post, you have some keepers here.

honestly, everything you've done to the photo in LR has been great except for the vignette. doesnt add anything to the shot - the clarity, increased vibrance/saturation are great, but the vignette is too square and ruins it for me. good work though if you just installed LR for the first time
