Posing for photos can feel super awkward. You can be standing there for a long time feeling pretty confused and uncomfortable. Let’s try to pose next to it, today I’m going to share with you my 12 photography tips every short girl must know. If you have a graduation, wedding or just through a really fun Instagram photo shoot that you want to do. I hope these poses help you out. So without further ado let’s get started.
Pose#1 Stop And Stair
So you’re sitting down and you want to make your legs look longer and leaner. It’s like my head is gonna attach to anything like it says to match my legs. I love the architecture of stairs I think it really draws your eye into a photo stick. One leg up and then one leg back so not too high. If you’re wearing shorts be sure to pull the line down. Ladies don’t want to show any of that lean back fix your hair. Gotta compose because when you extend one leg out it elongates your legs. Make sure your legs look miles long and it draws your eye from one end to the other end of the photo and makes it look a lot longer.
Pose#2 Lower Angles
Lower angles can elongate your body for all of you petite and short girls out there. If you’re going to love my next tip have your photographer kind of lower the camera a bit and Ankle it upwards. Don’t really look so much taller when she angles the camera down low. It’s all about the low angles that way it makes you look so much longer and taller. that is how I make my legs look like they are five feet long even though they are not.
POSE #3 Arms In The Air
Bringing your arms up is a great way to show off your sleeves. If you’re doing a fashion shot or jewelry also looks very carefree. Make sure for this pose to always point your fingers along at your fingers. Make sure to kind of point one direction because it makes your hand look so much longer.
Pose#4 Use Diy Props
Sometimes when you’re taking portrait photos it can get kind of boring. And you’re just smiling towards the camera. It can feel a little awkward so a fun prop you can add to your photos. If I had some flower petals so you could simply just take a few off of the flower bush and just throw them into the air and add a nice dynamic yield to your photos.
Pose#5 Look Taller
You want to take an outfit photo but you want to look taller. This is one of my favorite go-to poses I like to stand with both of my feet next to each other. And then I will bring one foot in front of the other. This pose makes me look like I’m taking a step forward and sometimes I’ll even look left or right and not directly at the camera. So it looks like this is something that’s a candid shot but it’s not really.
Pose#6 Review And Edit
If you ever feel uncomfortable during a photo shoot let your photographer know. You want to review the images so you can get a mental note of how you’re doing.
Pose#7 Keep Your Hands Busy
Next posing hack is to play with your clothes or accessories. If you’re feeling a little awkward just play around with your skirt or put your hands in your pocket. But not all the way in you can also hold on to your collar. You can also like a tug on your shirt a bit. I think it’s just fun if you play around with your clothes. It makes it look a lot more natural and casual.
Pose#8 Walking Shot
Next, I’m going to talk all about how to perfect that fake candid. You know that image where you feel like wow did he look really happy or how did they capture that moment. Well alright, I’m ready for my walking shot. Did you get it, okay I like to swing my arms back and forth tapping and rocking back and forth? Can help capture that candid walk and then kind of laugh and look behind and smile that’s just one of my favorite go twos.
Pose #9 Warm Up Shots
However, the photographer takes 10 to 20 practice images. That way you don’t feel that pressure that you’re going to get that perfect image. Not every picture has to be perfect. You know I usually go through a shoot and take 300 photos and only underusing one.
Pose# 10 Foodie
It’s time for coffee because I am sleepy. I don’t think I got enough sleep last night I’m going to show you how you can pose with your drinks. So I really like just like interacting with your drink. So taking a sip or just kind of looking away and playing with your hair. It just makes it feel a lot more natural and less Posey.
Pose #11 Slimmer Portraits
Feeling a little bit bloated that day I know everybody does usually looking straight ahead at the camera is not as slimming as looking from the side. You feel that when you look straight on it kind of looks really awkward. A lot quieter you can look naked even if you’re wearing an off-the-shoulder top. Let the wind do its work put your hand here. Shoot this photo a little bit from above and then angle your body to the side. A bit to watch your arm sometimes your arms can squish really tight against your body. You just kind of want to realize that and that way your arm looks nice long and lean. And then you can also look a habit or like look off to the side and kind of smile and your profile will tend to look a lot slimmer.
Pose #12 Be You!
If you ever feel that you’re over-sexualizing any of your poses ask the photographer. If you could take a look at them and if you’re feeling uncomfortable just let them know that. These are some of my favorite poses. You don’t have to stick your butt out you don’t have to like stick your boobs out. Those are not posed that you have to do just be aware that pose in the way that you feel the most natural and comfortable.
