Nini’s Closeup, Nacogdoches TX
We took this photo right when Nini walked out of the salon after getting her massage, hair and makeup done. I wanted to get a closeup that I could give to the makeup artist to show off their nice work. Until now though, I haven’t been able to find the makeup artist on facebook or anywhere, so eventually I’ll have to call the salon ask for their email address.
At this point in the day it was a little cloudy, but there was plenty of nice soft light, so we shot with all natural light. I added a lot of contrast back into the image in post processing to give it some depth. To do so, I mostly darkened the shadows on her camera left side and on her neck. This is a technique I learned from Lindsay Addler on CreativeLIVE’s photoshop week last week. Because of the nice soft light there wasn’t much retouching required for this photo.
My favorite photo from our shoot is this wider angle portrait I shared last week.
Critiques are always welcome.
