I have a shoot coming up with a female recording artist / model, and we thought it would be fun to do a little collaberative work with a male model....lifestyles and what not. The concern I have, is she is 5'5, and he is 6'2, he'll look like he's 8 feet tall when next to her.....I just wish there was a couple inches less height difference.....do you think I can make it work without it looking too terribly unproportionate? Maybe make her wear heels? Most collab. work I have done there has only been maybe a 3-4 inch height difference, does anyone have insight for me? Thanks in advance!

Yes, have the woman stand on a box (or some sort or portable platform you can raise and lower.) Or have the two people stand on different platforms of differing height. It's done on movie sets all the time. You do not have to include their legs
and feet and no one will be the wiser.

Great idea, thank you for replying! The only sad thing is the main reason I wanted to do this is to create 2 silhouettes at lake sunset, which would be full body....maybe if he were barefoot, and she were wearing heels, there would only be a 4" height difference? Hmmm....or would that be obvious...bah

You may have to find a shorter male model.

You may want to try a trick from the movie industry if there is enough light. If you have the shorter model closer to the camera and line them up properly it will appear they are together. With the right lens you can make her appear taller in comparison to the male model. The key will be to have enough depth of field to make sure they are both sharp and try and use a perspective to not give away all the ground between them.
Good luck!

8 inch heels would bridge the gap. I've had models walk into the dressing room shorter than me and come out a couple of inches taller than me.
