The shadows of the plants across the girls face is something I have already thought about doing, therefore this secondary source image gives me a good view of what my image might look like. I like the split lighting, it almost adds a level of mystery to the image. Although I like the close up crop, I think when I try to recreate this type of portrait I will try to include more of the environment.
