How To Capture the Perfect Glamour Photographs

glamour photographs The main element that can either enhance or spoil glamour photography is the lighting. However, experimenting with lighting can also give you surprising results. Discover how you can capture the perfect glamour photographs with some useful tips related to lighting.

See The Shot And Utilize Natural Light

It’s important to be able to see the shot and make the most of natural lighting, especially when outdoors. Making the most of natural lighting will give you beautiful shots, when you pose the subject appropriately. Take advantage of cloudy skies or shade offered by foliage to get the diffused lighting that’s perfect for glamour photography. Avoid shooting in harsh sunlight as it can cause squinting of eyes. The positioning of the lighting is crucial in any shot.

Nino Batista said in a recent article about natural light glamour photography:

“On the outskirts of a beautiful mountain range in Albuquerque, the path leading up the foothills was bathed in broad open sunlight (like everything else on the scene). While walking up, I saw a pocket of shadow caused by a brushy tree next to the path. I worked with Taylor, seen above, to have her stand directly in the shady area because I wanted her diffused and even, despite knowing that the surrounding scene would be overexposed in comparison.”

Communicate With The Subject To Discuss The Pose

Commercial beauty photographer Lou Freeman said in a recent video that it’s important to communicate your vision to the subject. Talking and getting them on the same page will help you achieve success in the photo session. Sometimes, using minimal lighting can give you unexpected results. It’s all about the angling of the lights and paying attention to the posing of the subject. The neck and hands of the subject should be relaxed when posing. Often, photographers get carried away with the lighting and the setting, but forget about making the subject feel relaxed during the photo session. However, it is an important element that can influence the success of a photo session.

Lou Freeman talked about lighting in a glamour photo session in a recent video. Glamour photography is not just about the choice of outfits and make-up. There are many elements that go into the making of glamour photographs. Paying attention to lighting and posing a subject can make all the difference in creating beautiful glamour photographs.
