People often ask me how I come up with the Illustrative/Creative portrait shots that make. I spend a lot of my free time doing things that inspire me, and often it is another photographers educational class that gets my juices flowing.
I recently took a class that Amanda Diaz conducted. I find my ever evolving style to have many similarities to hers. A direct quote from her website (https://amandadiaz.com/): "The type of creative photography that inspires me is romantic and dreamy, almost pre-raphaelite. I admire all the different beauty in people and love sharing that with others in my photos."
I agree wholeheartedly, and her use of tulle and ethereal finishes inspire me. Here is an image created with those things in mind.
