It is acceptable for the subject to portray a look or style and the photographer to enhance that style using dramatic and more unusual styles of lighting, camera angles, lens choices, and backdrops. Actors will often have a variety of Theatrical Headshots showing different types of looks so they can target different types of work or roles. These are the most fun to do.
Glamor Beauty HEADSHOTS
Fashionable headshots are a special mix. They are fun to shoot. While Glamorous they usually do not invite the viewer into the photo. Theatrical in look and style, they mostly show the eccentric, the beautiful and the unobtainable. Fashion and Beauty headshots show strong attitudes and often tend to be detached from the viewer of the photo. There is frequently an arrogance, bored look, almost of disdain for the viewer of the image, and what sometimes appear to be for life itself.
Eye contact is limited, and then often the model is looking down to the camera adding to the illusion of superiority. They are usually heavily styled, heavily retouched and mostly reserved to those with, slender faces, large eyes, full mouths, and angular features – traditional “pretty” is not a requirement. It is more how all the features work together.
Every decade seems to have its own style for Glamour. Great makeup and hair makes for great glamorous headshots. It takes special skills to ensure that the result is beautiful and not just tacky and overdone. Smokey eyes, false lashes, stronger contouring, wet, glossy, mouths, full lips, combined with luxurious, full hair styles, often made fuller with clip-in extensions … or dramatic shorter styles all work to complete the looks. Much like Fashion and Beauty headshots, these are fun to do.
