Did you shoot the the Lederhosen/Dirndl shot here as well? Also, I gotta know, is that practical haze? Or is it done in post?

Chase you are a very good observer. Yes the Dirndl Shot was done here as well. It was 4 degrees C (cold) so there was a little haze in the air which I emphasized in post

I’m well aware that this is unsolicited advice. I’m sure this was furthest from your mind when you were shooting. But his skin is so shiny, and I think it looks rad. If, in the future you wanted to multiply that effect, I use this hair sheen on the skin:

It’s not as obtrusive as baby oil, and it can be sprain on to target features and control quantity pretty easily. If you’re already aware of this little hack; please disregard.

Any advice is welcome.Thank you. There are a lot of details someone needs to take care of when creating an impactful picture. My blind spot is often hair/makeup/outfit. In my hierarchy of what’s important for me it’s often quite down the line. However if there is something disturbing than it pulls down the entire concept.
