Shoot: Wedding Photography Bridal Poses

We're going to talk about my quick tips for photographing a bride for flattering her and have a couple important things to keep in mind. One thing that's besides these general tips is that you don't need to go crazy. Tip number one is good posture, but a huge one to keep in mind is, for the longest time, the two top dress has been very popular, which means when people are relaxed, skin folds over. I mean, it's no. We have all dealt with this, so you want them to have good posture so that the skin is not folding over the top of the dress. She doesn't have that in this dress. It's no problem. Um, but you want good posture without them looking tense, So just pull the shoulders back. Never Ford in this way. The next thing with flowers can I borrow the flowers real quick? A lot of women are. There's. There's kind of two different things that women do. Sometimes they hold the flowers up because they spent a lot of money on them and you want that them just do you want everyone to see the flow...

ers? The problem is, this is hiding all of the curves in all of the shape and this is blob. This is there's no form here. So what you want to do is you always want the flowers below the bodice of the dress. So not here down here And when I tell people to do is try to rest their wrists on their hip bones. Because if I told them to put their elbows down, you're back to that same problem with no negative space. So if they put your wrist on your hip bones and then the flowers are in a nice place, oppose number two is negative space. So that's what I'm talking about, the flowers above the bodice of the dress. Everything should be about seeing the shape of the dress in the woman. It's meant to be very curvy and flattering. Um, I don't like for me. I see a lot of poses where maybe women are leaning forward and the dresses out behind them. I don't personally like those as much unless they're cropped really tight. I don't have arms in, like I don't do any bridal poses like this unless it is this close. Ok, um, next is if you're posing, and the hand is prominent to the photograph. Make sure you see the ring finger so you can see what she got for that wedding. Um, but really, for hand shots, if you are going Teoh, pose a hand on her neck. Don't pose this one. But this one, for example, And then, lastly is the hands have to be soft and elegant the whole time. Soft and elegant hands we need to do the crest. So these are that this is kind of the checklist.

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!
