WHAT THE ARTIST USED
I’ve picked the reference for this demo shot outside an hour before the sunset on a cloudy day. As you can see the skin tones and shadows on Christina’s face are very subtle but reveal beautiful colors nevertheless. She definitely knows how to strike a pose and I just used my Nikon D500 to capture the moment. I also liked the juxtaposition of warm green with white in the image.
