In addition to what has been said, learn to use the camera histogram on the review screen. It is not a perfect tool - it probably reads from a JPEG instead of RAW - but it is close enough to be very useful.

You can find tutorials online. You might also search for "expose to the right" - sometimes called ETTR.

As an aside, your tripod and arm looks pretty flimsy for continuous lights in that sort of setup. I expect to get really sharp photos you need a much more sturdy rig -- or switch to flash.
