It is not difficult to find many people that are interested in portrait photography. Glamor is an extension of this field and it encompasses both the genders. There are some essential factors that you need to consider before embarking on the field. Your photography cannot be glamorous unless you take heed of the basic essentials. For instance, you should build rapport with your subject. If you take time to know your subjects, they will be more comfortable in front of the camera. 

Makeup is another essential element that cannot be sidelined. Without skill and knowledge in this area, your glamor will not be glamor. You will have to know how to highlight a particular area for photography, how to shade an area for the camera and many more. If you don’t want to acquire this skill, you can hire someone as a partner to handle this aspect. A hair stylist is just as important as your makeup artist is. Hairstyle can dramatically change the glamor factor in positive ways.  

Posing is one of the difficult areas of glamor photography. While posing, you should be able to relate to your client. You should also relate to their features, clothing, flattering lighting and others. You can practice with many posing ideas on your friends. This will help you to discover what works and what not. Beyond a camera, you will also need some additional equipment to be successful at glamor. Dramatic lighting is an essential component. You should use at least three lights as reflectors.
