- chin down and forwards
In part 2, we’ll run through why some poses work.
Kant taught us that the ability to find something beautiful is part of our nature. This is why sculpture and paintings devote themselves to the appreciation of the human body.
Below I’ve provided a few simple postures such as sitting, standing, walking, or even dancing, that you can share with your photographer for great portrait results.
Tip #1 – Don’t face the camera
Turn your body slightly away from the photographer, turn your face to one side, and then move your eyes to the camera. This will elongate the body and create a more relaxed, pleasing stance.
