Here I’m going to tell you how to pose in photos because those of us that aren’t models we struggle with this, so I have some tips and techniques and some specific poses that you can try out when you’re posing for photos.
So the first pose is to hold something, if you add over a little prop it’ll make you feel a lot less awkward posing because you have something to hold on to. You can add a little coffee cup, hold it up to your face, to look like you’re about to take a sip for something. I’ve seen a lot of people do this with dessert items also, so a doughnut, ice-cream, a popsicle candy. All of these make great little props. If you feel kind of awkward just posing without holding on to something so for example you can hold a doughnut in front of your face or in front of one eye just kind.
The fake or real laugh
So the next one is fake or real laugh. It feels a little awkward but most of the time your fake laugh will turn into like you are actually laughing. But it shouldn’t feel like kind of you are forced. Try this out even if you feel uncomfortable while capturing, you’ll get great photos out of it.
Hands in pocket and looking up
This pose is just like a really easy pose, you can just put your hands in the pocket and look up to one side. So if you have a nice blank wall, your photo will come out more appropriately. This is perfect if you just want a casual understated pose or if you really like your outfit and want to show that off.
So the next pose is not a pose at all. But if you don’t pose rather if you walk and you pose as you look up; look to the side and you are having your camera on a really shutter speed; you’ll really get natural looking candid shots. One issue you might run into is, if you don’t have your camera on correct settings; your shutter speed is too low; then the pictures are going to be kind of blurry.
So here is the next pose, the sitting one. So it’s just a good way to place your arms and legs so they don’t look awkward. Siting ones can also look pretty unflattering if you are not careful. So what you do is kind of crisscross your legs. Or you can just put one leg over the other and you put one arm over the side. And just kind of look to the side and it looks like casual and candid. You can also turn your face the other way. And casually put a hand down and look back and this looks very interesting. Try this out!
Posing in the car
It feels kind of chilling but I think it’s a fun look. And if you have a car as a prop, it looks best. If you also have a cup of coffee in your one hand and other like upon the seat. It’s a kind of glamorous look so you can also use some sunglasses for this one too.
