What is glamour photography?
Glamour photography has always been one of the most prominent branches of photography. Those charming and alluring pictures showing models with the perception of feminine power are definitely eye catching. We can’t probably find anyone who would not admire these creative images and, of course, they have various uses. For example, they make perfect magazine covers, they can be turned into an effective advertisements or used as an artwork.
Contrary to popular beliefs, these models are not beauty queens by themselves. Most of the credit goes for the professional editor who is able to retouch, enhance and improve the photo to make it look so perfect. Therefore, if you need a smashing image for whatever reason, the professional editor is the only person hat has enough skills and patience to do it for you
Why do they look so perfect?
Glamour pictures usually reveal a lot of skin area and the main accent is the body. Therefore, beauty level retouching is a must. First of all, all the skin imperfections must disappear, the skin must look smooth and glowing. Skin retouching is the hardest thing to master and it might take hours to get the satisfactory result. It is a tedious work and even professionals must take extreme care to create a perfect picture. Not only the face, but the whole body visible in the photo must become uniform, flawless and reflect a classy tease.
Apart from skin retouching, there are also other objects in the picture that require attention. One more very demanding body part is hair. Working on hair can be as tedious as working on skin, but, luckily, it takes a relatively small part of the picture. It is possible to fill the spots where there is too little hair or remove if there is too much. It all depends on the desired result.
The final touch
We should never forget that glamour pictures create fantasy and various tools let us fulfill this purpose. An editor always adjusts colours, hue and saturation to create skin glow, enhance the siluette and the face, to shape the light and shadows. Depending of the posture of the model, it can be a very demanding job as the picture should still look natural in its environment.
Sometimes even photo manipulations can be useful. For example, you have definitely seen models wearing luxurious long floating dresses. To your amazement, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the model was actually wearing such an impressive dress. If the pictures are taken correctly, these dresses can be combined using the same piece of cloth, only captured in different positions.
Now, it should be quite simple to understand why glamour shots are so special – they hide hours of professional work. Also, even if we say that anything is possible, sometimes it requires preparation in advance.
