Taking photographs of humans requires practice and a lot of time. If you are shooting portraits, understanding of the person is also a must. It is necessary that you understand your subject to get the best out of them. This applies even more to women. Women tend to be very critical of their looks. So, how do you get women to let their guards down and to project beauty and strength like the rose?
Spend time with your subject
It is much better to do some snapshots rather than you ask the people you want to take photos of to position for them. Have an event, e.g. play a game together and then, in unobserved moments, you take your photos. This applies even more to children. Sometimes they don’t want to be photographed so just observing them and shooting when you feel the moment is there will give you the best portraits ever.
Technique and psychology
Show the photos you shoot to the people they are from. They are much more critical than you are and it a photo is just good when the person on it likes himself.
Sort out clothes
Clothes which look good and fit well can easily boost a person’s confidence so talk through them and find the most flattering outfits. Adhere to the basic clothing rules to help make your subject look the best they can on photos.
Positioning is very important in photos and you should take some time to practice this. Move your subject around to see where they look best and most flattering. A rule of thumb you must not forget is to always shoot from above. Only a very few look good from below and they are mostly models. So if you want to take the challenge of positioning people rather than taking snapshots as mentioned above make sure they really want to be photographed and like to experiment with you.
Avoid straight joints
You must have heard this saying in photography, “If it bends, then bend it”. A straight body looks stiff and it very unflattering to most people. Whatever the position of your subject, you must always try bending the arms and elbows slightly. The head should lean forward and the knees must also be bent.
