    If you hadn't chopped off the side of the dude in #2 I'd say that was the best.

    Not a single one of those look good to me. There is absolutely no subject/background isolation and the black shirts either fade horribly against the dark background or clash in the blown out highlights.

    Reshoot, pick a space than can handle 6 people with no visual distractions, if you can't, do the best you can and simplify the photo with PS. When posing them put them all on the same plane or on 2 planes with balance IE: main guy and girl in front, rest in back or main guy with girl in middle with two on either side, two low in front. Having the subjects haphazardly placed in the frame is noisy.

    When picking a background, pick one that can fill the entire frame and position the subject accordingly, having it cut off to blown out sky is going to ruin your photo. I like the graffiti wall idea, you just need to find a bigger one that will go with the shirts.

    I would say based of the theme I say that their music has somewhat of a hard edge to it. That and they seem to prefer a more aggressive facial expression than moderate and at ease.

    With those things in mind, I think you should pursue something along the lines of what you did with the Pool table. Have them interact with something or each other instead of just posing. They can keep the same facial expressions and seem moderate and at ease at the same time.

    I hate that the girl's shirt is a size (maybe two) too small :o

    Thanks for the CC guys, I really appreciate it

    I honestly had nothing better to do. I wouldve taken a nap instead but I decided to shoot, so I did.

    I will neither confirm nor deny this statement.

    I used 550ex on a off-camera shoe cord, and i had a slave 580ex on a tripod

    for the pool table, same setup, but i shot the tripod flash through a diffuser


    It wasnt bad for my 1st try :o
