    Not much of a fan of adding grain. Blacks seem to do a better job than the
    contrast.

    Question, I apologize if you answered this, I can’t seem to find it in the
    comments. Did you use flash for this photo or reflector? Thanks.

    What’s the purpose of adding grain? I’ve never understood why you would
    really want to add it, unless you were looking for an “old world” look.

    I just got around to this comment, that’s an amazing idea. I’m 100% going
    to be wearing white all the time at shoots now haha.

    Actually most of the fill comes from the white t-shirt I was wearing. Super
    clever technique I picked up a while ago for ambient light portraits 🙂
