Male Posing Guides
so photographing men Essentials number one. Remember when photographing men that their shoulders defined broadness if you want them to look broader, facing more straight on towards the camera, If you want them to look narrower or skinnier, turn them to the side shoulders or how you control how their body looks okay. The next one is to avoid head tilt toward the camera. There's two major male posing guidelines. Number three major male posing guideline is give their hands something to do. Direct their hands whether it's in a pocket, whether it's posing on their face, whether it's fixing a jacket, whatever it is, make sure that you've actually directed their hands, anything that you can think of so they are not fiddling, nervous or don't know what to do. Okay, Number four chin out and Down is good for men because it defines their jawline. They want a nice, crisp jawline, so whatever you're opposed they're doing out and down is going to be stronger. And then finally keep guys comfortable b...
ut watch their slouch. I find that guys tend to slouch more than girls imposing. They're a little less aware of it, so they don't have to be standing up street, but if they slouch, you don't want them to have kind of curve in their spine. So notice the example, but really like he's not doing like it's you clearly know it's not right, but you will see a lot of times in Portrait's, where they don't quite know into the head and tilts a little bit towards camera. So just neutral or away, see how way is still okay as well. A little bit of weight comes off a standoffish. You don't see the jawline as much when it's away, but it's still works. So depends What you're trying to communicate has kind of more of a confidence to it. Hands and face, right for photographing men. Let's take a look at their arms. First of all, all right, so what you don't want to dio is not told him what to do. Um, generally there's there's two things guys would do by default, and they're totally fine and completely acceptable. They'll put their hand in their pocket or the cross their arms. Both of them are fine. What you want to dio it's one of these. Okay, all of these would be acceptable. We mentioned this before the wedding caution. I tell people when I used to use to photograph weddings, the first thing I would say two guys is no matter when I'm photographing you, don't do this. Don't be standing there with your hands come together in the front. Some tips for sitting guys like to sit and lean a lot of times. That's part of the cool factor, because if you have a guy's standing, there are definitely some poses. You can dio, um, you know, arms crossed hand in pocket again, the uneven weight on the feet. But we talked about before. You don't want a guy usually standing flatfooted if you could just even dio. It's not where, Girl, it's like a tilt outward tilt in guys. It's just a little bit of weight off, kind of like he's stepping towards you. All right, so this general tips and some of this is what we talked about already. Sit forward and negative space, meaning if they're sitting in a chair, don't just have them with their hands rested on their lap. Find ways to make shapes. Um, depending on the guy. My next tip is avoid weight on their arms. And then the last one is if you're posing them in a chair, we're sitting. Don't have their body towards the camera.
