Glamour Photography

Glamour photography is a genre of photography in which the subjects are portrayed in erotic poses ranging from fully clothed to underwear. The term may be an euphemism for erotic photography. For glamour models, body shape and size are directly related to success.

This type of photography is known as “cheesecake” or “pin-up” for women.

Glamour photography is generally a composed image of a subject in a still position. The subjects of glamour photography for professional use are often professional models, and the photographs are normally intended for commercial use, including mass-produced calendars, pinups and men’s magazines; but amateur subjects are also sometimes used, and sometimes the photographs are intended for private and personal use only. The photographer use a combination of cosmetics, lighting and airbrushing techniques to produce an appealing image of the subject.
