One of the aspects my photography business is shooting portraits. My wife owns a music studio and a lot of students and parents coming through on a weekly basis. This gives me an opportunity to show some of my work to potential customers. As soon as I get this one printed, it will be up on the wall not only as advertising for me, but for this particular shot, as an inspiration to the music students.
The image was captured by placing the model on a white seamless paper background and a white, somewhat shiny floor. After the image was copied to the computer, it was edited to take out any slight shading on the white background and to add a light brown gradient. This was all done in Photoshop in about 10 minutes.
Now it is off to the printer for a nice 16×20 print!
