Previously published articles in the Posing Guide series contained hand illustrated posing samples as a guide for your photo shoots. Based upon feedback and questions I received about these guides, I wanted to describe the process in more detail and show some real photos created while using these posing techniques. The main purpose of using posing samples is to give your model some starting points. This will be a three part series looking at standing, sitting and laying down poses for female models. For the the first article I chose seven sample standing poses and by slightly adjusting each pose I got 21 different photos.
Then have her switch. Medium and Full Body Shots Step back or zoom out to get a wider shot of your subject. Try having her smile, and then have her stop smiling.
Sometimes serious looks are more powerful and may be what your client wants. Sit Back and Relax As suggested with couples, having your subject sit on the floor can result in some great photos. Play with the positioning of the arms and legs. A great photographer will try to capture moments like these to paint a bigger picture and tell a story about the subject.

Posing Ideas for Men This part of this guide covers basic posing ideas for photographing men. Many of the shots are similar to those of the women. Do they want to seem strong? Not only will posing your subject in a different way change this message, but so will the angle of the camera. Shooting from below will make your subjects look more imposing — great for corporate-type headshots.
On the other hand, many clients find shooting from above more flattering. As always, giving options is a good idea! Photographed from above, have your subject relaxed, looking up at you. This example shows the subject leaning slightly forward. This would be a great shot to have him stop smiling, to get a more serious portrait.
The Casual Hip Stance A more relaxed look would be to have the subject place a hand on his hip or his thumb in his pocket.
While it can feel awkward, usually the resulting portrait looks great! Full Body Portraits As with any portrait session, try getting some wider shots. This casual stance captured in a wider shot, perhaps with a lot of negative space , can be a great option for all kinds of uses.

You can use many of the poses from above, but here are a few additional ideas for kids. Eye Level Importance When photographing kids, one of the most important things is to get down to their eye level.
Notice how the photo above has the girl putting both hands up to her cheeks. Try different poses like this with the kid either standing or sitting at a table. Let Them Be Silly Depending on the kid you are photographing, you might open up with this one. Get down and take your shot nearly from the ground level.
Just a variation for a pose with the model lying on the ground.
Both hands might as well be resting on the ground. Works very well outdoors, on the grass or in a wild flower meadow, for example. A basic easy pose, yet looks absolutely stunning. Get down and shoot nearly from a ground level.
Then try to move gradually around the model while making shots. Also ask your model to change head and hand positions. Another easy yet gorgeous pose for all body types. Try different hand and leg positioning. A really lovely pose.
Works well in different surface settings: The model, for example, might lie on a bed, on the ground, in the grass, or on a sandy beach. Shoot from a very low angle and focus on the eyes.
Gorgeous and easy pose for a model sitting on the ground. Another simple and friendly pose for a model sitting on the ground. Try different directions and angles. Works very well as a silhouette when shooting against a bright background.
A simple and casual looking pose.
Lots of variations are possible. Ask the model to twist her body, experiment with hand positioning and try different head turns.
Another very simple and elegant pose. Photo 11 — From side view I followed to 45 degree position and asked the model to keep looking to the camera. Photo 12 — Lastly, I just moved farther away for wider frame. The same pose, but these minor variations provide you with greater choice of images to select from in post. Photo 13 — Start with asking your model to support herself at the wall with her back.
After that the first thing to take care of is shifting her body weight on one leg with the other crossed over it. Then ask her to place her hands behind her back asymmetrically. Finally ask her to lean forward slightly away from the wall with her upper body part.
Photo 14 — As usual I tried changing my shooting angle and took the next shot more from a side. Photo 15 — And I continued to experiment with slightly different hand placement and head tilt. These images might be very similar, but most probably your subjects will be grateful for this kind of choice.
Another at the wall pose but this time with the model facing the wall. Easy to describe and recreate. Both hands are gently placed on the wall right in front of her just below the breast line.
Photo 16 — With the previous instructions the model easily achieved the described pose.
And again I chose mirroring the sample illustration which already is one variation for any pose. Photo 17 — Here I changed the shooting angle nearly parallel to the wall and cropped for a portrait shot.
Photo 18 — Finally the model changed the hand placement asymmetrically for just another variation. This is a bit more challenging pose than the previous ones, so definitely some guidance for the model is required in order to recreate it. Photo 19 — The trick for the model here is to stand slightly off the wall and support herself against the wall with the front shoulder only.
Front hand is loosened by the wall. After that the model should support the body weight on the outer leg, kicking the hip out with the inner leg crossed over.
