Ready to take your standing poses to the next level? Our second series for National Photography Month is here and we’re exploring everything standing! Whether you’re posing for portraits or capturing the perfect candid shot, these three tips will help you rock your standing poses like a pro.
Standing poses can be both elegant and empowering, but it’s not always easy to know where to start.
Here are a few tips to help you feel confident and look your best in your next standing photoshoot:
- Shift your weight: Whether you’re standing with your feet together or apart, shifting your weight from one foot to the other can help create a natural and effortless look in your photos. It can also help to elongate your legs and add dimension to your pose.
- Mind your posture: Standing up straight with good posture is key to creating a confident and poised look in your photos. Make sure your shoulders are relaxed and your back is straight, with your chin slightly tilted down.
- Use your hands: Don’t be afraid to play with your hands and arms when posing. Experiment with different hand placements, like placing your hands on your hips, crossing your arms, or gently placing your hands in your pockets. This can help add a touch of personality and flair to your standing poses.
- Experiment with angles: Different angles can completely change the look and feel of your standing poses. Try angling your body slightly to the left or right, or tilting your head in different directions, moving your leg in front or behind. This can help create a sense of movement and add visual interest to your photos.
Remember, the key to nailing your standing poses is to relax and have fun with it! Stay tuned for more posing tips and tricks in our ongoing series for National Photography Month.
