Although each of my clients is treated as an individual, trends do emerge in terms of lighting and posing when taking photos of men. That’s because of different features, face shape, body shape, hair, clothing and pose.
Here’s a selection of portrait photos of men that’s I’ve created recently. They are people from a variety of backgrounds, needing photos for different reasons. They are musicians, business people and authors. Or individuals who just want good portrait photos of themselves.
As you can see there is a variety of compositions, poses and lighting going on, and each suits the individuals face, plus I think I’ve been relatively successful in bringing out the personality of each person.
One of the reasons like photographing people is that I enjoy the reward and challenge of getting photos that not only show what the person looks like, but how they are as a person.
Looking at them as a set, many of these photos have a relatively contrasty light, and a bit more shadow than I would use when shooting a female. Also the fact that they all have short hair means I can use a light to show some shape around the edges of the face. which accentuates the jawline and cheekbones. Always good! With longer hair this would have lit the hair for a different effect.
Taking pictures of men is part of what I do on a regular basis, whether it’s for personal or business purposes I can get you a set of portrait photos that make you look like the best version of yourself.
