I recently worked with Sasha for her portfolio. She needed head shots and I wanted to work on beauty poses. Beauty poses are elegant and shot in a way that elongates the neck giving the model a graceful appearance. I used fairly classic beauty lighting. A beauty dish in front of her, a hair light behind her, two standing reflectors on her side and a reflector below to fill in the shadows.
This blog I'm just showing some of the head shots but we also did full body and 3/4 body. We created images for 4 looks in her 2 hour session. Here I'm showing the monotone images, however for Sasha's portfolio she received the full color images in addition to the monotone. This gives her a variety to choose from when she presents.
I love the confidence that she portrays in this image
This one is much softer
This last image is more introspective and uses her arm to frame her face
