Everything I know I basically learned myself, but anyway I took what you said and tried something out and would like you opinion on it. Thank you very much.
A teacher can show you everything or nothing at all, there is still a lot to be learned on your own regardless.
Your angle is much more dynamic, but lets work on some lighting. Here is a crash course.
In max go up to. In the panel that pops up, make uure you have the light bounces set to at least "1". One will be all you need for this simple little crash course.
This will turn on Light tracer, and it will be a very basic form.
Go ahead and test render so you can see the difference it makes.
WARNING this will take a hell lot more of your computer than old basic renders will, especially if you take that bounce light higher than "1"
After seeing the render you can choose to do more dynamic lighting if you choose.
Look upbasic lighting, and you should see some tutorials over Key lighting, Fill lighting and Back lighting
Here is a quick example with and with out light tracer. The top render is with, the bottom is with out.
Also I circled the bounce setting in the light tracer panel
Sorry if it is a little crude, this was put together very qquickly.
