You can learn photography techniques that make the average man look as good as a celebrity!
As photographers, we spend a lot of time figuring out how to take flattering photos of our subjects. We work very hard to make our female subjects look good, but a completely different skill set is needed to take flattering photos of men…a skill set which most of us have never learned.
But men deserve to look good, too. After all, it’s not just women who are self-conscious about how they appear in photographs. Men also have fears about a less-than-flattering image of themselves living on in photographic posterity, though they tend to keep these concerns well hidden, and may even pretend not to care.
To add to the complexity, not all men are the same. They come in all shapes, sizes, and varieties: tall, short, heavy, slight, bald, or bearded. Some are dark; some are fair. Some wear goatees or glasses. Some are naturally photogenic; others need a little more help.
No matter who he is or what he looks like, every man deserves photos that bring out his best qualities. And with just a little instruction, you can accomplish the task.
Would you like to take photos that make average men look stunning, regardless of their shape or size? Would you like to take photos which bring out all their best features, so they can be something more than just an accessory or backdrop for your female subjects?
