Shooting the Male

26 May 2020 10:07AM   Views : 287 Unique : 220

Yesterday it was pictures of girls and today the male is the subject. Shooting males should be exactly the same, so I'll be interested to see whether the photographic approach is any different. That is a two way process of course and I often use "male" lighting for female subjects as I'm not really after the standard glamour shots. In fact, some models can be initially a bit of a problem in that they may want to fall into the glamour pose mould. This is especially true of the nude as a subject, where "fine art nude" is totally different to "glamour". But as I think about it, with both male and female shots I do tend to be looking for a narrative to give the images some rationale, a purpose if you will. I've mentioned this before, but I try to weave a story for the model, who can then act out the part and then, hopefully, I will get the look.

We've seen some fairly early examples of the female shots yesterday, so now let's look at some equally early examples of the male.

Tomorrow I'll look at reportage/street photography and that will show another type of photography of people, this time with their own narrative.
