“Perfection is boring. If a face doesn’t have mistakes, it’s nothing.”— Kevyn Aucoin
Few portrait subjects are perfect. Even many top models have imperfections from gaps in their teeth to tattoos (in unexpected places) so if you’re concerned about how your intimate portrait will look, I have some advice: Don’t let it bother you.
That’s because we all have flaws; we’re only human after all but some of them, even the imagined ones, become hot buttons when it comes to selecting the best photograph of yourself.
I recently had a slender client tell me she had a “big butt” because her boyfriend told her so but in reality this was not the case. So any photographs that hid her perceived flaw is going to be selected even if her face—the real subject of any portrait—doesn’t have the best expression or best angle.
Does this photo make my butt look to big? No it does not. This is not the portrait subject I mentioned previously but it demonstrates a pose for women who are not self-conscious about their derrières and might want a photograph for their significant others who, in fact, likes it. And by the way, the wall that gives her something to lean on and something to do with her hands while serving as a reflector kicking light back into the subject’s face to fill shadows.
