A Maternity Portrait with a Creative Twist

Maternity photo with flowing fabric

When I do a more traditional photo session, I like to add some creative flair to produce a unique image. This maternity photo is a good example of using light and motion to transform a simple portrait into a more interesting fine art photograph.

Other than cropping and a little bit of selective darkening, this image is straight out of the camera Рno Photoshop tricks. The effect is created by using a large studio strobe to light the front profile of the mother-to-be and a handheld flashlight to illuminate the tulle wrap as it was being waved up and down. Simple but very effective.
