Modelling – The First Poses!

Posing and modelling in front of a camera is not as easy as it seems and is an art in itself. The objective might appear to be simple but it can be more complex than you must have thought. Remember that you have to translate your three-dimensional Body into a two-dimensional space on an image. Therefore here are a few modelling poses which you can learn for an effortless photo shoot along with following the directions of the photographer.

  • Slightly angle your legs and arms rather than letting them hang from your body. Avoid making fists and keep your fingers loose especially when it is a full-body pose.
  • Have you mastered the three-quarters pose yet? You just have to slightly turn your body away from the camera and ensure that only three fourth part of your body is visible. It will make the photographs visually appealing while adding depth to them.
  • Facing the camera is probably one of the basic model poses but is the hardest to master. You can tilt your head to one side while letting one hand let loose and the other running through your hair. You can also bend your knees and elbows to change the look.
  • The against a wall pose can be a great way to add some interest and drama to the composition of the image. The wall can be a great prop to play with. You can lean against the wall completely or on one side while emphasizing your posters and curves.
  • You can divide your sitting poses into leaning forward and leaning back. Simply sitting on a chair will not create a dynamic or captivating photo. Play with your shoulders, hands or legs to change the vibe of the photograph.
  • You can keep your elbows near your knees by leaning forward to putting a sense of intensity. To display assertiveness, you can keep your knees apart while you can keep them together to convey a feeling of excitement and energy.
  • Placement of your arms and hand movement is crucial to add a dramatic effect and intensity to your image. Rest your face or chin on your hand while keeping the other arm on your thigh or knee. You can also combine this pose with keeping knees together or apart for creative different impressions and poses.

Good luck
