Re: first attempt at portrait lighting--suggestions welcome

I would move the camera left light to be on axis with the camera (to use as fill) and drop it's power.

Next I would hang either a black or white (or hell even grey) sheet up to cover that green wall. You are getting a nasty cast from that alone.

Then I would move the hair light more to the camera left and lower (and either grid it or snoot it).

That's just my quick take. I would probably try lowering the fill light to just below the camera height.

I think you are on the right track though.
