I shot these and am not sure about them. I don't feel they're my best but maybe I am in a funky mood. Feel free to crit me a new one.

Background needs color/texture. Otherwise, they're nice.

I shot them on a plain black backdrop. How would I add texture?

You could go many directions. If you have a second light, aim it at the background with a colored gel filter. Or try natural light and a window (backlit). There are many options.
