Männer wollen anders fotografiert werden als Frauen. In anderen Posen, in anderem Styling, in anderem Licht. Dies ist das erste Buch, das Ihnen zeigt, wie – für private oder Business-Porträts, für Werbe- oder Fashion-Fotografie. Der New Yorker Mode-Fotograf Jeff Rojas gibt Ihnen systematische und einfache Lösungen für Styling und Posing sowie für die Nachbearbeitung an die Hand, mit denen Sie die Erscheinung und Persönlichkeit Ihrer männlichen Models optimal zum Tragen bringen. Rojas macht Sie zunächst mit den fotografischen Anforderungen der verschiedenen Gesichts- und Körpertypen vertraut. Er erläutert, wie Sie durch die richtige Wahl von Haltung, Licht und Objektiv die gewünschte Bildwirkung erreichen, indem Sie bestimmte Züge betonen und mögliche Problemzonen wie hohe Stirn, Hautunregelmäßigkeiten, Bauch oder Doppelkinn zurücknehmen. Rojas zeigt, wie Sie Ihr Model im Stehen, Sitzen und Liegen posen und seine Kleidung so arrangieren, dass sie perfekt sitzt. Schließlich lernen Sie ausführlich und am Beispiel konkreter Setups, wie Sie Ihr Model ins richtige Licht rücken – angefangen bei der benötigten Hardware über verschiedene Arten von Porträts bis hin zum professionellen Lichtsetzen für Mode- und Werbefotos.

Photography is a complex craft. Some excel at the technical side of image-making, focusing perfectly on the subject, releasing the shutter at just the right moment and making exposures with the precise amount of light. Others are artists and storytellers, capturing a fleeting moment in time which inspires a viewer to gaze upon an image and ponder its meaning. The best photographers are masters of both. In this highly visual, informative new book, Angela Faris Belt discusses the four crucial elements of photography that are essential for successful technical and conceptual image-making: .the photographic frame and its borders .quality of focus as determined by the aperture or lens .shutter speeds and their effects in relation to time and motion .the physical media used to create the aggregate image Step-by-step guidance including informative screen shots, traditional darkroom and Photoshop techniques, suggested exercises, and before and after images help both film and digital photographers improve their skills, learn new techniques, and better understand their craft. More than 300 stunning, full color images and portfolios featuring the work of over 40 prestigious artists provide visual inspiration as well as a gorgeous collection of artwork for photography enthusiasts.
