Another very simple and elegant pose. You might have to lie on the ground and use a wider lens to get this shot. Sometimes serious looks are more powerful and may be what your client wants. Each pose has endless variations! Posing guidelines are simple: Hope you will find at least couple of poses to work with in different shooting scenarios! Photo 6 — To differentiate the look and feel, I once again asked the model to look down her own body and cropped tighter around the face.
Photo 3 — Also many different looking directions and head tilts are possible. In this particular example I asked the model to look back down her body. This look works very well in many posing situations, creating yet another variation just by slightly adjusting the starting pose. Eventually you will come up with some nice variations of your own.
Photo 4 — Before getting to the hands, ask the model to stand facing the camera and support her body weight on just one leg. This instantly curves her body and her shoulder line is shifted. After that ask her to gently move her hands around the face and in the hair.
Generally look for asymmetrical hand placements, but as you can imagine — many variations are possible. Photo 5 — In this shot the only difference is slight tilting of the head and putting one hand behind the hair. Photo 6 — To differentiate the look and feel, I once again asked the model to look down her own body and cropped tighter around the face. Also you should warn your model not to grip them too tight or press upper arms against the body.
Simply put, the posture should feel comfortable and subtle. Photo 7 — Before taking this shot, I showed the model the sample illustration and she tried to recreate it. This is as close as you usually get if you recreate the sample pose.
In this particular example I took a shot from higher angle aiming slightly down because I saw that this angle works better for the model. Photo 9 — Another simple way of transforming the pose is simply mirroring it the other way around.
And to even more differentiate it from the first shot, I asked the model to lean against a wall. Photo 10 — Here I started straight away with mirroring the sample pose because this was the better looking side for my model. Remember that it is different for each person. If you are not sure, take both variations and ask your model which one she prefers. Photo 11 — From side view I followed to 45 degree position and asked the model to keep looking to the camera.
Photo 12 — Lastly, I just moved farther away for wider frame. The same pose, but these minor variations provide you with greater choice of images to select from in post. Photo 13 — Start with asking your model to support herself at the wall with her back.
After that the first thing to take care of is shifting her body weight on one leg with the other crossed over it. Then ask her to place her hands behind her back asymmetrically.
Finally ask her to lean forward slightly away from the wall with her upper body part. Photo 14 — As usual I tried changing my shooting angle and took the next shot more from a side. Photo 15 — And I continued to experiment with slightly different hand placement and head tilt. These images might be very similar, but most probably your subjects will be grateful for this kind of choice. Another at the wall pose but this time with the model facing the wall.
A great photographer will try to capture moments like these to paint a bigger picture and tell a story about the subject. If you want to see all 25 posing ideas for women in full resolution, easy-to-see pages, download the PDF workbook at the top or bottom of this article.
This part of this guide covers basic posing ideas for photographing men. Many of the shots are similar to those of the women. Not only will posing your subject in a different way change this message, but so will the angle of the camera. Shooting from below will make your subjects look more imposing — great for corporate-type headshots. On the other hand, many clients find shooting from above more flattering.
Photographed from above, have your subject relaxed, looking up at you. This example shows the subject leaning slightly forward.
This would be a great shot to have him stop smiling, to get a more serious portrait.
A more relaxed look would be to have the subject place a hand on his hip or his thumb in his pocket. While it can feel awkward, usually the resulting portrait looks great!
As with any portrait session, try getting some wider shots. This casual stance captured in a wider shot, perhaps with a lot of negative space , can be a great option for all kinds of uses.

You can use many of the poses from above, but here are a few additional ideas for kids. When photographing kids, one of the most important things is to get down to their eye level. Notice how the photo above has the girl putting both hands up to her cheeks.
Try different poses like this with the kid either standing or sitting at a table.
Depending on the kid you are photographing, you might open up with this one. Just let them be silly. Have them make faces at you. Make them laugh. Have the kids bring one of their favorite toys — something that is important to them. Perhaps it is in the foreground in focus, while the kid is out of focus in the background.

Also, finding a suitable lighting situation and background can be a bit tough. In terms of ordering people from left to right, try different combinations.
Start with the parents in the middle. Then have them on the outside. Have it go boy-girl-boy-girl, or boys on the outside and girls on the inside. Pay attention to height as well.
You might have to lie on the ground and use a wider lens to get this shot. This posing idea works well for a smaller group like the three above. Especially for families with young children, sitting on the floor will come naturally to them.
