    IMO the lighting is way too harsh. I had to put a couple gratient layers in the background to even out the shadows on the wall.

    Input or tips?

    What you might do/try when using a white background is lighting the background seperatley that way the shadows get and the white get blown out.

    I was directing the light from the bottom so the shadow would be out of view. It was, but the shadows that I took care of in PS were just dark areas coming in from the sides of the frame.

    I should have used a reflector or something to spread the light around. My available resources were very limited.

    For close up work you don't need mutliple flash units. Simply placing a white poster board or foamcore where it will bounce the light back into the shadows will do the trick quite nicely. btw, I like your shot, background and all.
