AOP part 48: What to Shoot for Fashion
Over the many fashion catalogue shoots I've done I've realised that you must always check the back of the outfit. Often there is amazing details or patterns on the backs of clothes.
Maja makes these latex outfits herself and has her own company Dark Virtue Designs designing and selling hand made latex outfits and accessories.
The big problem you have to deal with is that if the face is rotated back to camera you will get creases on the neck. While I would be hesitant shooting this pose as a close-up portrait because of that I'm much less worried on a full length shot because the wrinkles are only a small part of the frame.
You still need to use standard posing techniques, so the arms should either follow the length of the body (as in the leading arm here) or needs to be clearly separated from the body (as in the far arm here).
High heels will always help with creating good definition in the calves and thighs as well. Much better with high heels or in tip toe than with the foot flat to the floor.
This is an excerpt from "Anatomy of a Photoshoot" which gives a complete breakdown of two days shooting with a full in-depth step by step review of everything that I do.
