HOW TO POSE - 7 Tips to INSTANTLY Make Anyone LOOK GOOD ON CAMERA

How to pose people for the camera. Aka, how to make you and your friends look good on photos.  How to pose people who are not models. Heya! Today we're diving into portrait photography - I want to share with you my tips for posing people who are not models. It takes a little practice but with just those 7 tips pros use to look perfect, you will crush it at taking photos of people.



First of all, let's remember when you take photos of people your goal is to capture their best self. Which means you need to bring out - some people are natural at posing for photos - most of us are not at all! So here are the tips:

#1 - Whatever is closest to your camera is biggest - it's even more accentuated with a wide angle lens. So make sure you don't put the wrong body part first. Use it to make people look good. (ex. bigger body parts further from the camera)

#2 - For women you most likely want to bring out their S curve - looks very feminine and slims people :) To do so simply tell women to put their weight on their back leg (in ref to the camera). This simple trick changes everything.

#3 - For posing men: ask them to get busy with their hands. Hands in pocket, jacket, chin etc... looks better than with arms hanging on the side.


How often are YOU in front of the lens?! ๐Ÿ‘€ ๐Ÿ™Šin the next post I’ll share a bit more about my story - stay tuned - not what people expect! ps: New video dropping tomorrow! ๐Ÿ”ฅ Get ready we’re changing scenery for our part 2 on Street photography ;) — Imagine this. Walking down the streets of Osaka, sunset time, you cross yet another street and suddenly bam! It hits you, the direct sunset light goes right through hundred of meters of the exact same street. Couldn’t help it, we stopped for an impromptu photo session, Trina @inspiredbytwelve loved the light too and proposed to get a few shots of me! She’s getting better :) — Shot at 31mm, ISO 250, 1/320s and f/2.8 Edited with my city presets and customisation. Link in bio. — #peopleportraits #osaka #igosaka #explorejapan #instagramjapan

#4 - Stand tall - imagine you're being held by a string from the crown of your head. Will make you look stronger, more confident & taller on photos.

#5 - Chin forward and down to get rid of the double chin / too much skin ;)

#6 - Get people moving - ask for people to move in your shots to create dynamism and a more lifestyle-ish natural look. Also helps people who are not comfortable in front of the camera.



#7 - Have fun - seriously - have fun with the people you shoot - your shots will bring out people's personality.

Hope you enjoyed those 7 tips to pose people on camera! See you in the next video!
