Different style ideas for this shot?

Hi - first post here. I'd like some style ideas on a shot I recently took. I did some light skin retouch, levels, sharpening - the basic stuff. I also used a slight cross process layer and desat on the image. I'm pretty happy with it, but would love to see other ideas from the experts. (I'm more of a photographer than retoucher!)

I'd love to see samples to give it more of "high fashion" look and feel. Thanks in advance.

I went for a red blurry background to add some depth. Some PWL and cleaning up.

No big changes, just altered the lighting a touch to give (hopefully) a slightly more dramatic look.

Well it is a different style I suppose. He looked far too smooth to me.


Just messing about.

Well, he sort of looks like my first boyfriend.... Who was HIGH a lot but definitely not up on Fashion..

Now, to get back on topic...

I will be the first to admit I have no idea what "High Fashion" is ( some examples would be nice ).. But here is my version of the picture.. My thoughts are there is too much blank space.. unless it is for a cover or something like that... Sooo, I cropped it just a bit along with some judicial darkening and lightening

Re: Different style ideas for this shot?

High Fashion is generally referred to as haute couture, exclusive clothing as opposed to mass manufactured clothes (pret a porter).

Seems to mean different things to photographers though. Ive seen many and long discussions without any final answer.
