Longer Legs

Wide-Angle Lens Here the photographer has used a wide-angle lens and is standing close to the model. This makes Amelias legs appear much shorter than they actually are.

Telephoto Lens Here the photographer has used a telephoto position on his lens and is standing farther from the model. This makes Amelia's legs look longer.

Longer legs are another desire for many women and something that photographers need to learn to deal with. There are a number of ways to improve the length of any woman's legs, such as choosing a longer (more telephoto) lens or zoom position, squatting down to a lower angle, choosing costumes that flatter the legs, working with costumes to better show off the legs, and selecting poses that are more flattering.

Some costumes provide a longer leg line because they are higher cut.

Lower Angle Here the photographer has used the same lens and position as before except that he has gone down to his knees and is shooting up at the model This makes Amelia's legs look as long as possible.

Importance of the Eyes

The eyes are very important to the photograph.

Watch the Eyes

"The eyes are the mirror of the soul" is an old proverb that applies especially to photography. A woman's eyes are a very key part of images, especially when they are more closely cropped. When the eyes are staring directly at the camera, it engages the viewer and draws him into the scene in a way that the model looking away doesn't.

Sure, there are times when the model will look away and it will work great as a photograph. Those images tend to be 3/4 or full length, showing more of the model. They also work best when she is focused on doing something rather than just staring off in space.

Importance of the Eyes

The eyes are very important to the photograph.

Looking Away When she looks away, it tends to make us want to know what she is looking at and takes us away from her.

Looking Away Since Deborah is not looking at the camra, it makes this photograph more private and more voyeuristic. Notice how this photograph works since you can see her mirror and makeup brush. We know what she is doing. Contrast this image with the previous figure where we don't know what the model is looking at.

Besides having the model look at the camera, "how" she looks at the camera will greatly affect the final result. When she has her chin raised, it gives the photograph a bit of an "attitude" and generally shows confidence. If you have her drop her chin down and use a higher angle by being higher than she is and shooting down at her a bit, it will create a more sensual or sexual look. You need to see the whites of her eyes below her iris to achieve this look. The whites of her eyes will only be seen below her eyes and not above it. In this case a more serious expression or very slight smile seems to work best.

Eyes at the Camera Having Joanna look directly at us brings us into the image.

Chin Lowered Iona lowers her chin, and look at the difference it makes. The photograph is much more sensual. You can see the whites of her eyes along the bottom of her eyes.
