Nervous about an upcoming photo-shoot? Don't know how to position your body, so you look fantastic? We are here to help.
At the beginning of a photo-shoot, many worried about their posture.
Many have no clue what to do with hands, which side to turn, how to hold their head, etc.
This is not difficult. With a few general guidelines, you would look like a VS Model:
The day before the photo-shoot, look at yourself in the mirror; take 10minutes to see what you like about yourself more and choose the most winning poses for you. This is an essential point. With a little practice in this way, you will understand what works best for you.
Look at examples of other photo-shoots on the Internet, in magazines. By looking at others, you can also understand what suits you personally.
While in the studio, it's a good idea to be shooting in front of a mirror.
Common mistakes that most people make.
- You should not spread your arms and legs wide, taking the pose of "starfish." This visually makes you look disproportionate.
- Do not put your hands on your waist. That visually makes the figure look wider.
- Don't drop your chin down. This adds extra folds to your chin.
- Don't lean back from the camera. Do the opposite - bend forward.
Some posing tips.
- Use your hair. Hair accentuates the softness of your shapes.
- Find the right outfit. Correctly selected outfits can hide imperfections and emphasize your body's main advantage, making you feel confident.
- Keep your face in a half-turn, straighten your back and draw in your stomach. Rehearse in front of the mirror beforehand to find the correct posture.
- The body's curves always a win in photographs, arms crossed on the chest and intertwined legs. This pose perfectly hides extra pounds and gives the photo a-little mystery.
- To avoid "wide shoulders" in the photo, do not shoot shoulders forward. The shoulders are the widest part of the body. By choosing the right poses, you will visually reduce them.
- Do not put your hands close to your body, especially if you came to the photo session with short sleeves.
- To prevent your hands from looking shapeless, you can bend them at the elbows, hold them on your belt or pick up an object, put them in your pockets, lean against a wall or "close" them behind your head.
