Baby on the way

One from a shoot with my cousin and his wife. Baby should be here anytime from now so I am dedicating this to them...congratulations Segun and Bunmi. Technical -The highlights were blown out intentionally to create the effect you see in the shot.

Lovely shot, Dotun. I like how their clothes blend into the background, making their skin tones stand how so dramatically.

Interesting with the blown highlights. I'm sort of on the fence if it works for this subject. I think it's a great look, just not sure about it for such a gentle and touching moment. As long as they lie it that's really all that matters. Good luck to them with the baby. I hope they have a happy and healthy baby.
The composition, concept, and processing are all excellent. How did you get their clothes and the backdrop to merge and appear indistinguishable from eachother. Overexposure? When you say blown out what does that mean? your humble student smile
Cool stuff D.
