Adding elements

Now as mentioned before on the blog sometimes we as photographers stop one step too soon with taking our “perfect” shot. And I know it’s often difficult to find that finishing touch. For example with the next image I was already happy with the end result..

The styling is cool, the model is nice, and I love the light, and in most cases one would say “done”.
However by adding one extra element it makes the photo pop a bit more and it really made the end result for me.

And it doesn’t have to be something big, as you can see here it’s just a red light shimmering through the image, but for me that really completes the image.

    As well as another element the extra light adds a little more detail (not too much) on to the models midriff, trousers, arms and top as well as warming things up a bit. You like your hard light Frank (you’ve got me at it) I love the fact it’s not all lit the same and the hard shadow the styling is on the edge as well….nice.

    Awesome… really brings out the skin tone and adds another dimension to the whole image!
