Shoot: Uneven Height Couple Poses

we're going to talk about photographing uneven subjects. The most important thing about photographing uneven subjects is remembering our rule. Whatever is closest to the cameras biggest I was furthest from the camera. Smallest tip number one. You don't need to eliminate the height difference. So don't you don't need to try to. You're trying to even it out a little bit like you don't need to have them lined up and look the exact same height. So don't stress about that. Tip Number two is you really want to maintain good posture and not strain. So actually have a good example of this. Ah, lot of people when the height isn't even the girls on her tip toes, right. And she's reaching up to try to put her arm drone, which isn't necessary. Or he wants to get ah, lot shorter. And so he hunches over and has bad posture. It's none of that. None of that is necessary, so maintain good posture the whole time. So you have a couple and I have three main ways of evening out. Height differences, three m...

ain ways. Way it number one is sitting so you can sit your subjects when you sit your subjects. People can sit on a foot. They can. One can stand behind the other. You can equalize that way cause the height difference isn't going to be know as noticeable because not all about standing. So sitting is your number. One way you can do this, the next would be the step in lean. We're going to see that I'm going to illustrate it for you. And then the last one would be walking. So whatever is closest to the camera looks biggest. So what you can do in this case is have the shorter person in the foreground leading holding the hand. Yeah, holding the hand of the taller person behind them, they to the camera will look larger, and the taller person in the background will look shorter. So we have a couple slides to illustrate just that. You can see side number one would be I don't wanna do you? I see this all the time. Really tall people by default, hunched over to be equal size. They and they do it all the time. Instead, you don't want a hunch You want to lean. All right. So I see this a lot is uh, whoever shorter giving other person a hug. I mean, straining to become the same size or to reach shoulders, don't do poses where you're trying to reach for the shoulders of the next. Instead, pick oppose that is going to be less straining.

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!
