Merry Christmas everyone. The most important thing about taking portraits is to have an amazing model to work with. The second most important thing is getting the pose. And the third is getting the light. The light here was at 2 o clock and set to be a little soft. I brushed in some pink on the cheeks to enhance the glow and a little red to enhance the lips. Topaz Star Effects was used to add the snowflakes. And Topaz Clarity was used airbrush the skin. Most of that could have been achieved the old-fashioned way with makeup.
