Tips and Tuts for this week:

  • How you interpret this is totally up to you! A man with a muscular body is no more masculine than a man gently holding his little baby. How about some masculinity in women?
  • Have a man in your life you want to photograph? Try some portraits. Not sure how to pose your subject? Check out this handy dandy article here!
  • Look for objects around you that may convey masculinity. Shaving cream? Power tools? Sparkly unicorns?
  • Redefine those stereotypes! Check out thesedudeoir” photos for some fun ideas!
