7 Posing Techniques for Non-Models

7 Posing Techniques for Non-Models
Not everyone works with models. A lot of photographers have the job of shooting with everyday people and we need to make them look like models. So how do you do that when the subjects have no experience posing or controlling their face for the camera? Here are seven tips to make your portrait subjects feel like models. We don't generally think of hair as a part of the body we can control, but you really can! Let's assume you're doing a basic portrait session without makeup artists and hair stylists. Hair all behind the shoulders.Hair all in front of the shouldersHair all on one side.Hair all on the other side.Hair up. Hair on the shoulders (#1) should be avoided at all costs. Generally you want their part facing the camera so more of their face is included. When someone stands in their normal relaxed stand, or even stands up straight to have nice posture, there is a little bit of flab right underneath their chin. Same before and after from the side. Same technique from a male subject.

How to Build a Realistic-Looking Beach Inside a Studio Swedish director Roy Andersson has built some impressive sets for his films, and for his latest work A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence — which recently won top prize at the 2014 Venice Film Festival — he built a very realistic-looking beach right on a sound stage: And here's the trailer of the film with the beach shot at the end: The set is very impressive, and while they did bring in a lot of sand, the solid structures underneath help sell this effect and probably make the set easier to work on. It may seem obvious when you see it, but the forced perspective, when done right, can convince you of just about anything. The buildings in the background are meticulously constructed and since the camera is at just the right angle (and does not move the entire shot), they feel like they are in the distance rather than being very small. The lighting is just right, though what also really helps this scene is the slight wind effect.

Here's a Look at How Much Post-Processing Goes Into a L'Oréal Beauty Commercial People can get really upset when you start using the P word. Magazine covers, professional portraits and even Instagram posts have been accused of using Photoshop. But nobody bats an eye when a beauty commercial comes on TV. Photos are manipulated, video, unless there’s CGI involved, is immune from such falsehoods right? Not really. The video condenses 30 minutes of Baselight color grading work done for a L’Oréal Garnier commercial down to just 3 minutes, and shows just how much work Brueckl does using some familiar looking tools. And that’s not even the full story. To be honest, I don’t show too much of the beauty retouching and skin grading. From a photography perspective, it’s fascinating to see how this is both very different and very similar to what one might do to a still photograph. (via PopPhoto)
