As I went over yesterday, Mr. Selfish and I took over 50,000 photos during this past year. Although we weren’t in each of these photos, we were in plenty of them and definitely learned a thing or two about posing for photos.
Although the photographer is very important, a model should also know what he/she is doing. Here are our posing tips.
1. Know your angles.
Some people look good face on. Others look good from one side. Whatever it is, know your angles and pose that way.
2. Wear bright colors.
I never realized how important it was to wear bright color clothes in photos until this selfish year. Just look at the difference between the two photos below. In the first, I’m wearing a tan jacket and completely blend in with the background. In the latter, I’m wearing my bright orange coat, and you can easily spot me.
