While looking good, being fit and being well-groomed play a huge role in how you look in your modeling pictures, there are other tricks that can take your pictures from average to great. If you are new in the modeling business, this blog will definitely help you up your posing game by several notches. Here are our simple yet highly effective tips:
Keep your mouth a tad bit open
Doing this adds to your appeal and makes your pictures look much more dramatic. Remember not to overdo it though, open your mouth just a little so your lips are apart.
Stand with your legs apart
When you stand with your legs all bunched up, you tend to look heavy. Stand with your legs apart and place one leg a few inches behind the other putting your weight on the back leg, this helps you look leaner and taller.
Stand on your tip-toes
Doing so adds a few inches to your height making your legs look longer, just like you are wearing heels. It also tenses the muscles of your legs making you look leaner.
Know your better side
You might have already heard this one a lot, but trust us it is super important. Sit in front of the mirror and observe your face, notice which side looks better, what angle enhances your facial features the most. Try posing for pictures with your better side towards the camera and you’ll see the difference. Most people have a better side, but if both your sides are equally good you are in real luck so cash in on that!
Tilt your head a little
It makes the pictures look more natural and enhances your jawline. It also softens harsh shadows making your face look slimmer.
When sitting, lift your legs
Sitting down makes all the flesh on your legs flatten, making them look heavier than usual. By lifting your legs of your seating surface you can make them look leaner as well as longer. Also, your body tenses a little when you lift your legs, which makes for better shots.
Stick your hip out to look curvy
While standing pop out one of your hips. This helps not only in showing off your natural curves but also in enhancing them by creating the illusion of a fuller figure.
