UPDATE: Original video was removed, but we found it again! In order to make our subjects look their best we need to be shooting them from the correct angles. Peter Hurley is the master at this and in his DVD he gives so many fantastic tips on how to accomplish taking photos of people looking their best. This YouTube video that popped up today on Reddit is probably the best example I have yet to see of how the simple change of an angle will give your subject an entirely different look. This is might just be the best 14 seconds of your day!
In the video the girl talking in Korean says, "The importance of angles." I couldn't agree more. It is amazing the transformation from the start to the end of the video by simply adjusting the angle and window lighting. If you want a sneak peek into the magic of using proper angles when shooting check out this 15 minute video from Peter Hurley. But if you are serious about mastering the skill and helping all your clients look better in photos I cannot recommend enough his entire 4-hour tutorial which is available here.
