This is an interesting infographic created from Photobox survey about how women feel about being photographed. As photographers, we sometimes get caught up in the act of taking a photo that we may forget what it’s like on the other side of the lens. Being able to sympathize with your subject, especially if they are more self-conscious about how they will look will only help make you take better photos of them.
Here are several of the findings from the survey:
- Out of 1,000 women aged 18-65, only 10% actually cared about how men think about them in the photos. Women between 35-45 are most bothered by what other women think of them in photos.
- 75% of women surveyed hate swimwear shots of them the most.
- The least favorite shot to have taken is full length with many women hating the camera tilting to portrait.
I’m guessing the last one is about taking a photo in a portrait orientation.
Readers, we would love hear your opinions on this infographic below:
