Tips to help your model look their best

Help your model look their best (or help yourself look better in photos):

  • If your model is balding, shoot from a lower angle to show less of their hair and don’t use a hair light at all.
  • If your model has a larger nose then have them look straight at the camera and shoot from a lower angle so their nose will not be so prominent.
  • If your model has big ears, then turn their head so only one is showing and then feather the light so that the other ear will fall into shadows and not be noticeable.
  • If your model has lots of wrinkles, light them straight on so that the light will not produce shadows from the wrinkles.
  • As mentioned a little earlier, if your model has a double chin then have them lift their head slightly so that it stretches out the neck area. Also you can try to light them more from above which creates a shadow under the jaw line and makes under the chin less noticeable.
  • If your model has a round or fat face, have them turn their face to the left or right, giving you a three quarter view. Also using a split lighting set up helps by keeping one side of the face in shadow.
  • Another tip for making your model look slimmer is to make sure that you leave some space between their arms and torso. You will be surprised how much bigger they look with their arms at their side.
