Jowling Photography

Looking to take a portraits with a quirky twist? Try ‘jowling‘ (also sometimes known as slap n’ flap).

How do you do it? Get your subject to relax their facial muscles completely (to the point that they have no facial expression)…. open their eyes and mouth (try to keep them open)… then to shake their head from side to side as fast as they can. Start snapping (use a flash and fast shutter speed to freeze the ‘action’)! Here’s what jowling looks like:

OK – so I suspect that most of these shots are taken at parties when the facial muscle relaxation is aided by a drink or four – but this jowling thing is bigger than you might think – it even has it’s own website – jowlers.com – complete with it’s own ‘how to’ page, galleries and more!
