Well known fashion photographer Lindsay Alder is one of many esteemed speakers at this years WPPI. Her platform presentation “How to Flatter Anyone, No Really Anyone” is scheduled March 5th from 8:30- 10:AM.
“As a fashion photographer, many people believe that I only photograph ‘perfect beauty’ as our society has defined it. In reality, however, most of my paying clients are from this standard and are professional athletes, singers and performers. My job is to use the tools in my photographic tool box to help them look their best and make them shine.
Lens choice: Select a longer lens with MORE compression. This will make the nose appear shorter and less pronounced. If typically with portraits you shoot between 70mm-85mm full frame, you might instead consider 200mm in this instance.
Pose: Keep the subject’s face most straight toward the camera. The face to profile or turned too far to the side will draw attention to the length of her nose. A face toward the camera will generally be more flattering. – See more at: http://blog.wppionline.com/2014/02/how-to-photograph-a-prounounced-nose-tips-from-lindsay-adler/#sthash.o4Z44h6b.dpuf
