Thread: No bra is the best solution?

  1. #1

    Default No bra is the best solution?

    In another thread, our "resident" fashion guru has highlighted the problem of bra straps spoiling the look of the images taken by our members here .....

    Of course, in an ideal situation, many shooters would prefer a no-bra rule, which would obviously solve some problems, but IMO the quality of portrait images will surely be affected, and also many of our models here are newbies and almost under-aged.
    Now, who should be held responsible for any fashion nightmare in a organised shootout?..... the organiser?, the model? or the photographer?

    Maybe some members here would like to give some suggestions as to how these models should choose their clothing, make-up, padded bra, accessories, shoes, hair-styles, etc.

    how about arranging the bra straps properly so they don't show? i remember when i was young, showing your bra-straps was a no-no.

    Dont see any issue with being underaged. I think a lot of people here have too many taboo with the word "underaged". There is no law and no legal liability in photography of what people consider to be "underaged" models.

    Haha, hope I'm not the one started it. This could be the cause - http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/showthread.php?t=366481

    There's a cantonese saying, 吃得了咸鱼,抵得了渴。

    If the model wanted to earn this line of money, then they would have to setup as per requirement. However, they would also have to be mindful, because not everyone will look nice without bra. Haha, if you can imagine what I mean. They just have to be appropriate for the require angle and purpose, while not offending themselves, or make others "vomit".

    So, to acquire a good fashion sense is just one of the basic, especially if they are on their own, unless their styling are being sponsed all the times. If a model doesn't know how to make oneself looks beautiful and unique in front of a camera, then why the need to pay high dollars to employ one?

    However, on the other hand, every things have its starting point. To become a good model and earn big bucks, would need to accumlate experience, learn, and grow...

    Cheers!

    it's a matter of fashion sense. bra-straps are now considered a 'fashion accessory', and they come in different colours and patterns.

    so, the important question is, are you spending your money wisely?

    i never really understood why people paid good money for such shoots anyway...anyone care to help me here?

    dam i wrote a whol chuck but the page dissappear

    First thing first,the model should make known to the photographer what outfit she is going to be clad in during the shoot and approval is subjected to photographer especially if it's a paid shoot.
    I don't have trouble with fashion shoot mainly because i'm roughly the same age as these models and having seen how female friends around me dress,it gives me idea to work on.
    Of course,i'm speaking for myself and it could be very different from how older photographers think which i would attribute it to the generation gap between.

    The biggest problem with bra strap and dress strap is that most bra straps are wider than the dress straps and it just doesn't help that the bra straps are usually quite contrasty when compared to the colour of the dress/dress straps which results in it being prominient.

    My suggest would be to have the model wear a white tube inside instead of a bra strap.
    Of course,getting those 'stick on' is another alternative.

    The organizer should make sure that all the wardrobe / accessories / makeup match the suggested theme. He/She should check or advise the models. How many photographers (customers) actually check on what the models going to wear before the shoot? For private shoot, I believe all the photographers will do the check. However for group shoot, I believe the organizer simply tell the models what to wear without checking (I might be wrong).

    Sometime showing the bra strip might look good or sexy (for me). However, one thing I can't stand is over size clothes or poor makeup (especially mascara).

    Instead of you all guys wondering how to solve this bra straps problem, why not asked your female friends or girlfriends on how difficult it is to wear and not to wear a bra.

    Mind you there are many types of bra in this market.

    Just for your info, Nipple Tapes is a not a bra.

    If you do not want to see those straps, you can request the models to get those stick on bra (it's made out of rubber which sticks quite well) but I can tell you it's not the most comfortable they would want to wear.

    It's not they do not want but sometimes it can be very inconvienient for them.

    Those professional models who models for a living is different level altogether. Those on Clubsnaps are just starting out and just want to have fun. I do not think they will go to that distance unless they are well paid.

    it's the responsibility of the artistic director of the shoot (in these cases, you the photographer) to ensure what needs to show and what not.

    Don't want bra strap showing, either ask the model to go without or for whatever reason need to wear one, make sure it's doesn't show. You would have arranged before the shoot on the attire and naturally, request the model to wear something appropriate for it.. be it strapless, low cut or bare back..

    For the models, it would be good for them to have various if they do not already.. most girls I know do anyway..

    and for the photographer, to ensure.. remember if the models doesn't have the bra to compliment the outfit, I'm sure the attire can be changed to suit the bra.. there are more solutions to just going braless..

    professionalism goes both way..
