The Psychology and Techniques behind Photographing Beauty
80% of photographing people is psychology. 20% is the art and science of photography.
Cameras, lenses, lights and modifiers are all tools that photographers use but these are NOT what makes a great beauty shot or portrait.
Photographing people for any reason is a relationship game and the gear must take a back seat to the interaction between you and your subject.
Photographers routinely go out of their way to learn how to sell to their clients, but they don’t put the same effort into learning how to interact with their clients to get the desired results in front of the camera.
Great images require planning and collaboration and are the result of great problem solving. Together, we will take a deep dive through my entire process and I will share with you how I plan and execute a shoot. I’ll cover everything from shoot prep with both my subjects and makeup artists and I will review communication and posing techniques and share with you some of my favorite beauty lighting arrangements.
What you will learn:
- Concept development — How to build great ideas.
- The importance of Collaboration — How to build a team
- How to find, prep and communicate with models
- Best ways to find and communicate makeup artists
- Communication tips to motivate and direct your models
- Lighting Tips for great Beauty Portraits
- … and much more!
