    haircuts/barber photos

    A friend who thinks I am a very good photographer asked me to take some pictures of haircuts (he is a barber) that he has to sent in for some big competition. But my experience with this is zero. Personally I think there should be quite a bit of back light in the hair but it shouldn't be overexposed like the usual hair spot. But what is backlight if it is as strong as the fill... Boring right?
    Does anyone have experience with these sort of pictures? I'll just try to do some things that aren't the way it should be but maybe the guy wants a picture he can use as well

    cheers!

    My wife does hair, and at the salon they always have these hair style mags lying around. If I were you i'd pick up one of these mags at the book store and see if that helps. i think that the style that they use is the same that is turned in for competitions.

    That's a good idea, I'll visit the barber and have a seat between these ladies under their hairdryers and look at some of those books. I am afraid it's about the hair and not just making a picture I like

    cheers!

    Very true! It is more about making a picture your customer will like.
