18 Aug Why should you do a glamour photoshoot?
It may seem that glamour photo sessions are reserved exclusively for professional models. Nothing could be more wrong. Every woman can hire a professional photographer. Perfectly made and processed photos can be a great gift for a husband or a fiance. Such gifts are becoming very popular. Most of all, however, a photographer is able to capture and bring out the beauty of every woman in a photo.
What is Glamour Photography?
Glamour photography focuses on the beauty of the person in the photograph. While it’s a standalone genre, that focus on beauty can inspire work in other genres as well. For example, portrait photo sessions or fashion shoots. Glamour photography isn’t well understood. It is a genre that can celebrate sexual attraction. Because of this, it sometimes makes photographers apprehensive. And other times it reaches extremes that no longer qualifies as glamour. Glamour photography is a form of photography which focuses on the models used in the photography, highlighting their natural features in a way which is meant to be flattering and artistic.
The history of glamour photography
Both Hurrell and Louise arrived in California in 1925 to find Hollywood in transition. Advances in technology were paving the way for better quality pictures – both in the sense of feature films and in promotional photography – and Al Jolson’s groundbreaking “talkie”, “The Jazz Singer”, was just around the corner. Over the next 15 years, these two were responsible for some of the best known images of the day – images whose power and magic has endured over the years. Tragically, Ruth Harriet Louise died from complications relating to the birth of her child in 1940, while Hurrell continued to work in Hollywood, off and on, for another four decades.
The glamour images that the pair took of stars like Ann Sheridan, Olivia de Havilland, Greta Garbo and Marion Davies truly capture the zeitgeist of Hollywood in the 1920s and ‘30s, and are, in some part, responsible for our modern perception of that golden period of American cinema.
The Vision of Hurrell and Louise
The true genius of George Hurrell and Ruth Harriet Louise lay in their vision, and in their ability to give true beauty a platform from which it could shine. They captured images that elevated movie stars above the level of humanity, turning them into symbols of perfection around which people could build hope. In a very real sense, glamour photography had taken on a wholly new element of social importance.
