All:

If I have posted this to the incorrect Forum I apologize.

I have a question regarding "classic" portraiture. If I am photographing a female model and she has long hair and she takes up a pose that puts her shoulders at a 45 degree to the camera with her left shoulder being the forward one (closest to the camera) in theory how should her hair be set?

I have generally had the model (or in some cases I have done it myself or had an assistant do it) pull the hair on the left side of her head forward and the hair on the right side of her head back behind her head and shoulders. In my opinion this gives a balanced look but the majority of models I have worked with left to their own tend to pull the hair that is on the right side of their head forward and let the left side fall back. For myself I don't like this but I think it comes from a woman's inate desire to be sexually appealing by showing her neck.

Anyway, my question is what is the preference of the photographers in the group? Hair on the near side forward or hair on the far side forward and why? Thanks to all.

Dave,

Part of the decision comes into play as to what you want to show or hide or what helps shape the face better. One thing you want to avoid is ends of hairs on the back side protruding from the side of the face like an unkempt beard.

Usually when the face turns back to camera there are neck lines or creases I want to hide. I typically balance hair on both sides of the face. In a profile I remove it from the far side unless her head it tipped forward and I am framing against a curtain of it.

Apparently the word "p h o t o c a m e l" is being filtered out by the G1 software. I don't know why. If you run on to a situation like this and you want to post a valid link, its better to just use tiryurl.com. Here is your above link using that serrvice:

http://tinyurl.com/2f4unf

This will avoid the problem of the link not working and people not really in some cases understanding what you intend for them to do.

Cheers,
rfs

That's not nearly as fun though.
