This is an older image that I previously had passed over because there were a few things wrong with it, but thought I’d give it a go and try to make it work.
In the straight image the girl’s skin was a bit blotchy around the arm and forehead, for some reason. So I softened the image in an effort to hide that.
Whenever you make a close up like this, little details are enhanced, including disadvantageous ones. Here the chin area had some of the girl’s hair showing and looking too close to (or possibly reminding the viewer of) a beard. So I tried to clone that out — still needs work though, unfortunately.
Lighting was my usual one light with reflector setup.
