Today’s portrait photographers owe a debt of gratitude to old-school pin-up and glamour photographers, who knew how to entice viewers with images that ooze with a playful, come-hither sexuality. The subjects were impeccably posed, lit, attired, and directed to ensure that every portrait was evocative and gave viewers insight into the woman’s personality — whether she were a smokey-eyed siren or a girl-next-door type.
In this book, you will learn how to connect with clients, create effective lighting setups, correct perceived flaws through posing, drum up playful prop-and-set combinations to develop a portrait theme, and more.
