Model Posing Tips

Posing is the key to getting that look

So, what makes one posing the way to make you stand our more than others? Here are a few basic models posing tips to keep in mind. These are just tips, so remember always to follow the direction of the photographer. They are the only one who can see what is working and what is not.

1. The way you angle your legs and arms, even if only slightly. Keep your fingers loose and avoid making fists. Stay calm and relaxed the best shots are those that capture naturally this is mostly when you for full body shoots.

2. Master the three-quarters pose. In this pose, you turn your body slightly away from the camera so that only three-fourths of your body is visible. This adds depth and makes the images more visually appealing.

3. Follow your photographer’s direction on where to look. Looking directly into the camera has limited appeal and doesn’t work in a lot of cases. Look behind the camera, or into the eyes of the photographer. When asked to look a specific direction, have your eyes follow the direction your nose is pointing. Doing this produces a more honest and candid shot. It’s also perfect for picking up eye color and catching light in the image.

4. Keep your poses moving and alive, but move slowly. You want to change things about every three seconds. Move a hand, change your posture slightly, change your facial expression. A model with years of practice, would do these variations in poses correctly.
