Friends, let’s face it I am no Spring Chicken, and as I was reviewing images from a recent session of capturing imagery for my brand I found how important it was to me personally how I place my legs, hands, and arms so that my curves would be properly proportioned. Also, let’s be real even if you are a double zero , the most often question I get asked is what do I do with my hands, LOL!! The vision of “Ricky Bobby” immediately pops in my head. If you don’t know who that is, well, enjoy looking it up and having a few good laughs.
To be 100 with you, just because we are experienced photographers it doesn’t mean we are confident in all the areas of posing ourselves or that there is one specific way you should do it. After all we are all blessed with different body types and what might work for one may not be our favorite look for another. It’s all about the person, the location, if you are sitting or standing! Believe me there is one shot I tried on this chair and it’s too tragic to even share without a butt load of embarrassment.
Posing is so important and creates a feeling to viewers for them to be captured and engaged. My clients rely on me to give them guidance with posing. As movement and laughter are my personal key tips I have listed below 5 tips to make sure you are taking the initial steps for great posing techniques.
The below image does not make the cut , this took me out of my comfort zone to share, well for obvious reasons, but it’s not flattering at all. So Sit up , stretch out and give your tummy some space and not scrunched up, lol! Now I am literally doing sit-ups, uggghhh!!!
All opinions, styling, and thoughts are of that of my own. Images captured by Audrie Dollins Team. Thank you for loving and supporting my work friends! You are greatly appreciated!
