Posing Parts: Men, Feet, Elbows & Nose
here. You don't really want feminine. Lee posed hands for a guy, usually. So it is usually going to be more of kind of in the fist area. Or I've seen some good ones. Where you guys kind of punching? Look, But they've got a cunt this going on or hand off to the side. Arms cross. But their hands aren't like soft. The arms were crossed, still making fists. But I mean, clench. Just hands together. Um, so back to my number. Number number number one tip for guys is to keep their hands occupied. If a guy has clothing that lends itself to be interacted with, do that. So if they have a jacket on, pose with the jacket. If they have cuffs, fix the cuffs. It What if they have a jacket to throw over the shoulder, throw it over the shoulder, do something with their hands in some way. Okay, next one is feet. So posing feet. I just have a couple tips on that. We covered most of it already, but the big one is avoiding flat, even feet. Your feet should not be even weight. And even together, the arrow in...
this instance is for you to watch. So in case I really have never really seen this, So I did a test. Okay, so she's standing flatfoot and even puts her one foot back. Even that gives her a little bit of definition, but she's not leaning back on that foot. She just put it back, and then she leans back. See how much skinnier her waist is? How much more shape that gave you hourglass. And she did not have her Lincoln forward. I did not have her kick her hip out. All she did was that's it. All right. So the two photos that I have here, let's talk about her feet. In both of these photos, her feet are flat and even at least on the one on the right, I've given her a little bit of negative space in a little bit of shape of putting your hands on her hips. But it is statically. Can you feel that it is up and down your eyes. Do not move in that photo. Your eyes go straight down. What you want is your Ida Wander. You want your eye to go through inside. So they talk about the secret s curve. I never found that. It was super useful for me to do Secret s curve just for women on. Like, I want to do this in their pose. Um, so in this pose, now, I do this when you see my hand, I'm literally doing this. So if you look all I had her do with sticker foot out in her hip out and it was that foot out that made the difference. Getting her feet uneven. Okay, So dynamic poses. This was asking for the funky poses, the different poses in fashion. They're usually too. There's more than that. But, like really two main ways you go, you either go sexy or you go like for powerful high energy. Um, you know, like I sometimes do creepy. That's OK. But beyond that, and the way that you do sexy is curves. The way that you do dynamic and powerful is triangles, triangles and negative space. Lots of triangles. So my recommendation to you is like I said, you don't want elbow towards camera, you want away or down. But if you're going to do a close up shot where you have it away, ideally you have it either in shadow. You have it covered by clothing or it's a really nice armpit Lakers. Posing knows is the one thing that I would watch out for is when the nose crosses the cheek line. What I mean by that and I will show you you'll actually see. This is when somebody turns to the side and you're photographing them. At some point, the edge of their cheek, the nose peeks out over the top of it, either do or don't.
