Some of them never will, because they're used to seeing themselves in a mirror with the image reversed. Try flipping the image & see it that works. ; )

its amazing how well this work.

there is a woman i have photographed a few times, and she hates having her photo taken, says she always looks a bit odd, but can never tell me exactly why.
last time i photographed her i loaded the pics straight into the laptop, picked 2 shots, flipped them both (so i had 4) and then asked her to pick which one she preferred.
she picked the flipped ones.
when i explained to her what i had done, and the reason she didn't like photos of herself, she was amazed.
was a fun little experiment....

The downside to that is then her friends will wonder why the images are "a little off!" ; D

Yea, there is that......

I should have asked the PR and Media people and the Journalist to vote too - im willing to bet they would have picked the normal photos.

It was a nice simple portrait pic for a newspaper - so i had to file the normal unflipped pics.

in general, if you want something to look smaller you need to push it away from the lens.

what about shooting her from above? standing on a chair, stairway, etc. that will lift her chin making (always a good thing) and put her face closer to the camera than her bust.

something similar could be accomplished by her laying on the ground and looking up at the camera in front of her.

this effect wold work better with shorter focal lengths since telephoto compression is working against you here

If this is a sample of your lighting, your facial lighting is deeply unflattering and poorly done. It may be she does not like to tell you that, so is searching for an excuse as she does not want to undermine you.

If she truly disliked her bust I suspect she would not dress in tighter clothing.

I think blaming the subjects hair style and general look and style for poor lighting and posing is both inappropriate and rude, especially on a public forum. Would any of you want to read such critical and personal comments about yourself and have them permanently posted all over the web on an open forum? I think not.

Her choice of brassiere can dramatically alter her bust. Ask any woman; they can make something from nothing and vice versa.

I'd ask her to experiment to find one which gives the shape she wants in the images.

I'm with OhLook. It seems you may be trying to change the appearance of someone without knowing if they even want that appearance changed.
.

The camera always distorts proportions. Always. It's the inescapable physical result of forcing a three-dimensional object into a 2-dimementional image.

A photographer who wants to present a portrait to a client that presents the image the subject is accustomed to seeing must know how the camera distorts and shoot to correct it beforehand. That's what most of the discussion about distance and focal length, camera height, posing, lighting, et cetera is about--knowing how to bend the fixed, two-dimensional image to fit the subject's own impression.

Reducing the distortions introduced by the camera should be done up front--no need to confer with the client about that.
