When taking photos of women, there are different features of the body that a photographer want’s to emphasize.

Shooting photos of men and women are different. Women are typically desiring to look slimmer in their photos, so it’s important to focus on slimming points of the body.

As a photographer, I focus on the slimmest part of the waist, which is usually around the ribcage. I try to angle my models faces away from the camera slightly to create a thinner face. You can also use shadows to create different illusions on the face. It’s important to help your models with their posture. Remind them to push their shoulder blades back and together.

In the photos below, you will see examples of portraits of women.
