Don’t ruin her photo by ignoring her hands . . .
Read My Story…
Sadly, I once took a portrait that had everything…
Beautiful, once-in-a-lifetime light. Unique, gorgeous location. Effortless, in-the-moment expressions. I swore that it was going to be the best photo I had ever taken.
Until I got home.
This is the sad part… 🙁
Once I loaded the photo into Bridge, I saw a detail that ruined everything I had loved about it.
Guess what happened?
The model’s hands were unnatural and manly. She was grasping a prop like a lizard. It wasn’t her fault, though. I should have seen it and directed her.
Hands Behind Her Back
Hands behind the back doesn’t work with every girl; however it’s very feminine and sassy when it comes together. Have your client reach behind her back and clasp her wrist, forearm or elbow of the other arm.
She can also try clasping her hands together.
She forgot about her hands because I hadn’t trained myself to look out for these mistakes. And it made my entire photo unpublishable.
A once-in-a-lifetime chance down the drain because I never put time into learning this.
Instead of relying on tried-and-true methods, I relied on intuition and the models themselves.
Don’t make my mistake!
