Strike a pose: For females
2. A nice and cozy pose, very suitable for indoors with the model sitting on a couch
3. Very nice looking casual pose for a model sitting on the ground. Try different shooting angles, for example, move gradually around the model or change the shooting point’s height.
4. Sitting positions are not limited to casual shots. Don’t be afraid to try some sitting poses also for more formal shots.
5. According to some popular and commonly exploited body language rules, crossing arms and legs means putting up some barriers etc. Even if such beliefs are widespread, it doesn’t mean they are correct. In pictures crossed arms on the chest don’t send any subconscious signs or warnings at all! Crossing arms and legs in all different ways is absolutely fine for people photography.
6. Not always your model needs to “place” hands somewhere specifically. It is absolutely fine to leave them loosely by the sides. The same goes for legs, no exaggerations – one leg supports the weight, that’s the only rule you need.
7. Just another sample for a full height shot you can use as a starting point. Thumbs or hands partly in side pockets also work fine.
8. Very easy and beautiful pose for a formal portrait. Model should turn a little bit sideways, head turned slightly down and towards the camera.
9. Placing both hands on the waist is also a very photogenic pose. Works well both for half and full height shots.
