Posing

Knowing how to pose people makes a huge difference in how they will look in your images.

 

Here are a few still images that illustrate these techniques demonstrated in the video above.

window-light-different-angles-smaller

Your subject doesn’t always have to look right at the camera. Placing the hands on hips shows off a more defined waist line

figure-85-hands-in-pockets-thumbs-out

Placing hands in pockets and thumbs out gives a nice natural break to the arm line

figure-73-do-not-cut-people-off-at-joints

Have your subjects stand at a 45 degree angle instead of straight on towards the camera. Also don’t cut them off at their joints like in image A.

figure-81-under-pier-side-light

Have couples look at each other instead of only looking at the camera

figure-51-group-shot-composition

Have big groups sit in multiple rows with levels instead of long straight lines
