    Nice, I like the lighting. It looks like you added some fill light on the guys and underexposed the background a bit to make the pop...I like it.

    Here's something I've learned in my short career taking photograph's of people, always go Orson Wells style, and get down low and shoot up at them, people want to feel big and powerful, and sure everyone who shoots people does this but it works, but you want to avoid literally "looking down at people". Also when shooting people a more limited depth of field is what people evidently think of when they want any type of portrait. I always struggle with the same thing when I'm photogaphing people because I want to capture everything, but it's what most people want. You'll see when viewing your photo's with the people, they'll make alot more "ohh's and awwes" at the ones shot with a zoom. Anyway I hope this helps.

    The lighting is not bad. Looks like flash on camera, while it works to fill in the shadows, it tends to flatted out the faces, losing dimension. Also, watch your posing. The two guys in the black pants are OK but the guy in the white pants is twisted like a pretzel and look uncomfortable.
