One of my favourite ways to light the subject is 45 degrees from behind. Not only does it add liveliness without bringing attention to anything distracting on the face, but it also ends up saturating the skin tone on the face/ body due to a stop down in exposure compared to the highlight area. I found this an easy way to manage a tan skin look throughout the retouching process.
Here are some photos with lovely model Anneliese from Anitanorris models.
Thank you to my awesome teammates as always :)
