I hope y’all had an amazing week and before we wrap it up, here’s a little something to brighten up your weekend as you’re planning for that photoshoot, event or on a basic picture taking day really. You are definitely gonna need to take pictures for some reason aint you? Yaaas💯
Today, we are talking about how to pose for pictures especially for all my girls out there, am gonna give out a few tips and samples so be ready coz you already know your girl Tabie is always ready and in the mood to make it right ✅
um, anyone can be photogenic really. Okay, for some its in-born (lucky them) lol but others need practice to get there. Before i get into it, i just want to make it clear that you dont really need to be underdressed like those instagram models u see to look good in pictures and attract a thousand likes. You just need composure, be yourself, and of course some splinkles of self love to make killer poses behind that camera. Thats why u need to stick around up to the end coz this post will help you boost your posing confidence with emphasis on being covered. We all know good pictures will definitely definitely boost your self image in a way- we are living in a social media lead world after all, nobody wants their instagram boring so all my ladies that struggle with posing, i gotcha😉!
nough of the chit-chat, ill go straight to the tips
1. Know your angles
Personally, i do too well with my right – so if am putting one leg in front of the other, its gonna be the right leg, if am putting my arm on the waist, its my right hand and if am showing my face from the sides, its definitely gonna be a right side view- u’ll notice from the rest of the pictures that i love leaning on my right and thats the side of my body that i show first before the rest of it. Knowing ur angles will help u bring out the parts of your body that make you feel cute and walaaa picture perfect😉
2. Be fierce (and cute)
Here, u really wanna stand tall on your two feet and give that look like u you are the alpha female in the club. You get the point right? you can do anything with your arms but be sure to keep a straight face, give a daring smile (like you saying ‘i got this’) and just tease your viewers.
This can go with any outfit of your choice
3. Be flexible
If standing in front of a camera makes you nervous, just breath in and out and relax every nerve and muscle in your body. let your body be loose like a free bird ready to explore the world. that way, u will be able to carry your body in any way you can and bring out that sexiness in you.
4. Show your Curves
Girl, behind the Cam is your own little world to shine- emphasize those curves, make them loud- You can do this by lifting the hip on one side or you can also bend over just a tiny bit in order to bring the bum out. Be careful though, sexiness is the goal so dont over bend or do anything extra to spoil the whole picture in the name of curves.
5. Smile Smile and Smile
Girl, just smile… u are not fighting with anybody. We all know how a simple smile brightens the day and of course they say happy girls are the prettiest so find any excuse to smile or laugh if u have to!
6. Let your outfit guide you
On this one, i will use samples from one outfit won differently for easy understanding
um, this is a red suit won with heels and a body suit making everything look so chic. Posing in this outfit has to match the decency in the outfit. comparing to the same outfit won differently below
here, its a whole casual look. Red suit won with sneakers and the mood or feeling has to match, so should the pose. Your outfit should act as a guide on what to and not what to do during a shoot of any kind.
7. Have Fun
Like i said, take behind the camera as ur own space, a world of your own where u can let out all the craziness in you because really, pictures are a reflection of your pretty self only that lens are involved this time. Don’t be scared of the photographer, infact, just pretend he is not even there and just have fun honey😉
Just to add- I was talking with my boyfriend this other day and he said something that kinda inspired this post. He said, ”I feel like posing for a particular picture depends on what you really want to show at that moment” Can be a certain accessary that you are wearing, your hair, your makeup or the outfit itself. Se for instance if i want to show off my shoes, i will definitely have my legs as the center of attention so that thats the first thing you see the moment you look at that picture
And that is so true. You need to give your viewers hints on what you want them to really look at when posing for pictures. let that particular thing pop out first in sight and the rest can follow.
Well having said that, i hope this post was helpful and if y’all have any questions, additions or anything comment down below😊
Have a Magical weekend and don’t forget to stay safe, Corona Virus is still out there!
