Shoot: Female High School Senior Poses

And so we're going to talk about, Ah, high school senior girls. All right, so I do know I'm talking to different people around the world. This is not always prevalent where you live, like in different countries. They don't do high school senior photos. However, when I first started my business, high school senior photos was what I'm made my living on. And so I've done a lot of this type of shooting, and I really like it. So the reason I like it so much is high school. Senior senior girls in particular let you get creative. So let's go to the my top five high school senior girl Posing guidelines are so you can get more creative. But in the end, if you're getting really creative and you have the girl posed in a funky way and her expressions gone because she's uncomfortable, then it was a failed shot. When you do a fashion shoot a lot of times expressions, less important high school senior photo, it's all about what she looks like all about that expression. So that would be number one is.

Don't let your desire to get creative getting way of the expression, but definitely what I recommend doing his go sees, then go crazy, then get creative for my portrait sessions for high school seniors. What I always, always, always did was a basic hands on chair shot or hands on opposing table girl leaning towards the camera smile I'd get Those are the pictures that I know matched up with what Grandma had on the wall and everything. So everybody had that shot that they wanted. And then she's lying on the ground and then she's, you know, hanging out of a tree like whatever it may be. That's why I like these best to get really creative. Okay, My tip number two is a symmetry. You want to be asymmetrical in your poses, So let me explain what that means. Whenever you have two things, don't mirror them usually if you want it to be really interesting. Okay, Next one is if the girl is standing, make sure she's not flat footed. Have them put their weight off on one hip or, if they're facing towards camera, put their weight on their back foot, make sure that their weight distribution is uneven. My tip number four is out of any of subjects that I pose high school kids, men and women. I use hands a lot more than a lot of the other subjects I pose cause you can get more creative. So for girls, I think that you could make some really great images, were their arms and their hands frame their face and frame their body. So this would be a great opportunity. If you want to get better opposing hands, master with high school senior girls and then bring into other areas of your photography. Okay, a number five. How I try to remember and not run out of poses for these particular subjects high school seniors is, I think, the standing shots obvious, but you've got sitting, leaning and laying.

This is a great course for a quick reminder of things to keep in mind when headed out for a particular shoot. It's bullet points. General principals. If you are new to posing, you'll want a more in-depth course where she has live models and is positioning them rather than just talking about posing techniques. But for a Fast Class, I think this is perfect. Wonderful job, as always Lindsay!
