Lets tear up the bad advice instead.

Right! Like we've NEVER seen Zac Arias or any one of a million fashion photographers use a white bg.

As to lighting I would say not bad for a second time out. At least there is a sense of balanced lighting here. He can move on from that but to call it boring is inaccurate. Is it Dramatic? No. Sufficient? Yes. I've seen much worse.

And to whomever suggested multiple catchlights were a no no, really? Since when? check out Vogue or any other high end fashion pub and look closely. You'll see everything from one catchlight up to multiple LEDs in a ring light.

Honestly, I often wonder why some people bother to comment if they really don't know what they're talking about. I'd say you're off to a good start. You know about David Hobby's right? Go there and study up. Buy any of Joe McNalley's great books on simple lighting. And shoot, shoot, shoot.
