How do you define glamour? When you think about it, it’s a pretty elusive term. Yet it is the focus of Capture Your Best.
Glamour photography has its roots in the photography of George Hurrell, a gifted artist who helped to define the 20th century sense of the term by photographing movie stars from the 1920s through the 1950s. No longer regular people with perceivable flaws, Hurrell’s subjects were idealized icons, radiating a kind of celestial glow unattainable to mortal man.
Glamour photography is about creating images which make the subject look beyond their best, into a kind of other worldly, shimmering beauty. Perhaps more so than any other type of portrait photography, glamour images are created by meticulous lighting. But clearly, however one defines it, glamour photography is something you know when you see it.
