Background issues

Kristin Palmer

Recommended Posts

My vision for this photo is that I would have an almost blacked out background, with a single light coming onto mum. I realise my mistake was not hanging a black background behind and I'm left with a pretty amateur looking image. It's a shame because I have a series of these images with beautiful poses and expressions, so I'm looking for help.

I've tried overlaying a gradient, but I'm not sure its really convincing. I'd appreciate your opinion.

I've attached the photo that is simply the RAW converted to B&W, and one where I've tried the gradient (I know the masking is rough, obviously I'd refine it) 

Thank you
