The Studio – Lipstick

Following my session in the studio last week I have been editing the images with Lightroom. Below is the before and after image of one of the close ups that I particularly like due to the models relaxed, natural and happy expression. As this is an image for advertising lipstick, with the model looking downwards the focus is on her lips.
