Are you trying to figure out how to pose in order to get the best shot? You’re not alone. This is the problem that most people faced when they are going to have a photoshooting session, no matter it is for casual photos or for their wedding.
Yes, photographers are important in getting perfect wedding photos. However, if you do not know pose in front of the camera, the result will not be great. After all, unless you’re a professional model, you’re probably not accustomed to being in front of the camera. So how do you pose for your wedding photographs to guarantee shots you’ll actually want to frame or put in your wedding album?
1. Find Your Best Side
No one likes a photo which their face look wide, round and asymmetrical. Take some selfies and practice posing with your face tilted in each direction. Once you know your ‘best side,’ always pose with your best face forward.
2. Angle your body
You have to know that how you angle your body can change how you look. If you stand or sit straight-on, the camera sees more of your body. Instead, angle your body 45 degrees away from the camera, push your weight on to your back foot, tuck your “away arm” behind your back.
3. Keep your chin up
Do you do this when you are taking a photo? Stop doing it! By sticking your chin out slightly, you will look better in the photo and able to see your jaw line not to mention that to avoid a double chin!
4. Smile Naturally
Smile gently like you do in real life and not as big as possible. When you smile largely, your cheeks puff out and your eyes squint, which can make for an awkward-looking photo. Smile gently makes your face looks relaxed, your mouth opens slightly, and your lower lip matches the curve of your upper teeth. Think of something that makes you happy—like spending the rest of your life with your significant other.
5. Use Your Tongue
Try pushing your tongue against the roof of your mouth. This somewhat awkward feeling pose will help to elongate your neck and reduce the appearance of any double chin.
6. Practice good posture
Standing up straight really does make a difference, not only elongate you in photos, but it gives you an aura of strength and confidence, which is naturally alluring.
