There are some excellent glamour photographers who visit GG. I always learn by seeing the different types of lighting, posing, composition, etc.

Not too much data is always given, which is fine, and understandable, but most of the time any question is answered, whether briefly or fully.

Most, not all, seem to shoot professional models who need very little done in the way of “enhancements”. OK. A couple of photographers do discuss how they transform the body.

Now for my comment/question.

For those of us who photograph “everyday housewives”, can anyone share some techniques on how to make the body appear thinner, more sexy, or perhaps how to pose where the breasts appear more symmetrical. (Most of the ladies I photograph are natural.)

What about some of those really great glamour “sets”. Do certain color combinations work better than others?


Thanks

First you have to be able to communicate and get them to open up and trust you and your ability to make a great picture.

Short lighting, shooting across the bust line, and tape are all things to help them look their best. There are many books on posing and lighting the nude and boudoir images. Buy them all and take what works for you.

I'm a newbie, especially in this genre, but the I work with is an housewife (my wife...). The advice I can give you for posing is to search this forum and the internet and you'll find tons of ideas to adapt to your needs. For the lighting matter I love natural lighting even if this won't make so often high glamourous effect but with black and white photos works great. Next I agree with kgphoto about the communication with your model, giving her the time to relax chit-chatting before start shooting. To make "normal women" like supermodel you can try different angle/lens and then use postproduction software to correct little defect (skin imperfection and so on).

that's my 2cents... hope could help

edit:
Also use heavy makeup (not clown like, but more than usual) would help make the housewife look better...
