An important component of the success of a photo shoot is the right choice of poses, naturally succeeding one another and colored with a general mood. The best photo shoots in the studio, in nature or at home are obtained when the model is natural and relaxed, does not feel uncomfortable, taking this or that pose, because the tension will certainly appear in the look, facial expression or position.
Of course, when choosing poses, you can rely on the photographer, but if this is the first shooting for you, it's better prepare for it in advance. To select the appropriate poses, view photos, fashion magazines, make a selection of your favorite pictures and save it in a form that is convenient for viewing on your phone or laptop, or print on sheets of paper. In the absence of sufficient experience, do not copy the poses of professional models, for a beginner they are unlikely to be organic. It is better to start with the domestic, favorite and comfortable body positions for you, they are most suitable for your temperament, build-up or mood, which means that the photos will look natural.
Be sure to try at home to fulfill your favorite poses, try to remember the sensation of the body in a certain position, choose the appropriate facial expression, gesture, winning angle. To see yourself at the same time from several sides, use the tricuspid mirror. Train until you feel yourself in the chosen pose naturally and at ease. Having mastered simple and habitual positions, start working on more complex and extravagant ones.
There are a huge number of poses for women, so let's give just some general recommendations for their implementation.
Standing pose is the most common, has a lot of variations, usually it starts with a photo session. Here the body should be relaxed, reminiscent of the outline of the letter "S", the weight is transferred to one leg. The more bends the female figure has, the better it is perceived, the lateral bending of the waist and the deflections of the waist look advantageous. Mask the shortcomings of the physique will help cross arms and legs, postures in the floor of a turn or face. Hands should not hang "at the seams", they can be put on the hips, lift up, etc.
The sitting position requires less effort, than the previous one. You can pose on a chair, floor, high or low stand. The back should always be straight, the round does not look good. Do not press your chin to the neck, while creating ugly skin folds. Poses on the floor or other wide and low surfaces create an informal, homely atmosphere. Hands and feet, left at an angle close to 45, significantly improve the perception of the figure, their repeated bends give the composition a certain rhythm and add artistic value.
Posture lying down is used less often, although it has a number of advantages. In it, it's easier to pose, and you can show the model's figure in a winning way. If lying on one side to extend the leg, it seems longer, with short legs it is better if the lower one is bent. In the pose on the side with an emphasis on the forearm, the additional effect is given by a lumbar bend, it is more cozy and quiet. Ideally for girls and children, lying on the abdomen with the support of the forearm, it is not only convenient, but also advantageous in terms of lighting-the head is facing the light source, the hands are removed from it, which allows you to reduce distortions of hands and highlight the main thing.
The postures in motion are complex both for the photographer and for the model, they are better used for shooting athletes, dancers, actors. The easiest way to depict the running model, while clothing and hair can flutter, creating an additional effect.
Poses for photographing men are less diverse. In the studio, mostly use shooting in a sitting or lying position with a demonstration of musculature, i.e. in open T-shirts or with a bare torso. When a photo session on the street, the poses should be combined with the chosen style of clothing and entourage.
In conclusion, we recall that in the process of filming it is necessary remember the expression of a person. It can be calm or smiling, surprised or sad, but always should correspond to the chosen posture and the conceived image.Photogallery Total | 9 pictures
