A Guide to Posing for Your Photos – No Matter Cleveland, PA, NY or DMV and FL
The key to taking genuine and authentic photos is knowing how to pose in front of the camera.
If you’ve never taken professional photos before or if you simply want to improve on your last session, here is some advice on how to pose that will leave you with exceptional images.
The last thing you want is a portrait that looks stiff and awkward. The secret to creating a beautiful, intimate photo is to get close. Snuggle up with the people you love if you want the best photos. If there are people of varying heights in the photo, take a few photos on the same level so that you can get your heads close together too.
Your photos always look more authentic when you are genuinely having fun and laughing. Spend time talking about your favorite vacation or a memory that makes you all laugh out loud. These candid moments always make for the best photos.
Keep it Natural
When you overthink posing, it takes away from the genuineness of your photos, which is why it helps to shoot your photos in a setting where you’re all comfortable and where you can go about your lives as naturally as possible.
Use Your Surroundings
Very often, standing upright in the middle of a room or garden will make your photos look and feel stiff. Use your surroundings to make yourselves more comfortable. For example, if there’s a wall in the vicinity, lean up against it. If there’s a couch available, pose on that for a few shots.
Make Use of Props
If you would like to change things up a bit or give a younger child something to do, you can also always incorporate a few basic props into your photos to get a few non-standard shots.
