Re: Glitz Headshot Help?

The term isnt girls and photography that gets people on these forums bothered. It is the term "glitz" photography. Enlarging little girls eyes, plasticizing their skin and turning them into living dolls is simply wrong and not a part of true pageants, so it SHOULD NOT be a part of child pageantry.

After a life-long cultural brainwash it is not a free choice. It's simply the Stockholm Syndrome. Exactly like fundamentalist Islamic women are brainwashed by their society/culture into believing wearing burkas and niqaads is the thing to do.

Car photographers aren't sexually attracted to cars; nature photographers aren't sexually attracted to nature; pet photographers aren't sexually attracted to pets; yet, there's an often ill made assumption that photography involving "young girls" is automatically sexual.

It's kind of creepy people default to that frame of thought; and makes me wonder what is going on in "their" head.
The frame of thought belongs to the mother of 3 children, a daughter and twin boys. Whilst they are now 18 (former) and 16 (latter) doesn't mean that I can't wonder if these young girls are being exploited.

Okay, i am going to remove the photos if this keeps up. Aparently, the girls WANTED glitz shots. They asked me to get them.They love pageants and are not being exploited

Yes i agree, which is exactly why i used their natrual shots to glitz, so it didnt look like the other glitz phtos. It's hard to explain

Re: Glitz Headshot Help?

Why can’t there be a Glitz thread that just discuses the technique of achieving the look instead of everyone’s opinion on pageants. We’re here to learn photo editing.

If possible you need to reshoot the girls in a pose & dress as close as possible to the Glitz pictures you like at the highest resolution your camera has then start your retouch from there.

Perhaps a better way to describe what you want would be to request an Extreme Glamour Beauty Makeover... maybe something like shown in the tutorial presented here: Give a Photo a Complete Glamour Makeover

I may be completely wrong, it's just a thought
