Welcome back to my fairy tale world. Hope you guys had an ecstatic long weekend. I am updating my space with yet another blog post identifying with your requests on my Facebook/Instagram. This isn't something that you guys might not have explored before. But let me add my flavor of easy tips to "POSE FOR PICTURES". You get used to certain pattern with practice , but at the same time it might not be a daily to-do for most of you guys to pose for pictures , but when done occasionally you might want to master it. So follow me along while I walk you through.
But again these are not limitations or golden set of rules , you can always be yourself when you get photographed. Nothing beats the natural sense you.

1. OBSERVE YOUR FRAME (WHERE YOU ARE GETTING PHOTOGRAPHED)..
Look around you , observe where you stand. It gives your picture a character. If you are standing on a plain empty land with a water background or tall trees or just plain park , just feel the air. Get the natural vibe going and give a free pose and do not freeze. Let your Hands and legs free and going naturally. But if you are standing in front of a blocked background do not give a free pose. Instead play with your hands - you can slightly touch your hair with one hand or if you are carrying a hand bag hold it , hold it in an angle. Sometimes this helps in a slender picture output. Finally what I mean to say is react to your surroundings.
2. TWIST OR ANGLE YOUR BODY.....
A 45` degree angle. This is called the celebrity posture. Now twist your waist by pin pointing your toes. You need not do exactly as mentioned , but a simple twist adds really good definition to your picture. Sometimes we look more bulkier than we actually are in photographs , you can avoid that situation by practicing this simple tip. Because standing straight gives you a flat photograph adding you to the flat background. You can change the dynamics such images with a simple twist.
3. CROSS YOUR ANKLES...
This is a well known and pretty much in-use all the time tip. But this is by far the best posture for pictures. Crossing Your ankles is the best way to get a perfect picture in casual way. This makes your hips look narrower and elongates your legs. If you are sitting when getting photographed - sit up straight with 90 degree spinal cord and cross your ankles. You will look the perfect casual chic.
4. UNPOSE FOR A PERFECT POSE....
Sometimes posing too much can make it monotonous and unnatural. Be your casual self and play around. By that I mean just jump around. Hang on to something , just do not look at the camera or person behind it , be absolutely not conscious. Get your pictures clicked while walking , watching your favorite spots and enjoying the beauty. Unposing is the top trending posing. Makes your pictures look quite natural. Unfold you "be yourselves" side and see the magic happen. The art of unposing comes out by bringing your natural vibe out irrespective of the people and surrounds watching you.
5. 2/3 rds TURN FOR PORTRAITS AND HEADSHOTS...
If your are posing for portrait pictures or close ups use the trick called 2/3rd turn. Check the below images for reference. Instead of showing your straight shoulder line turn a little bit and face away from the camera. This positioning improves the appearance and entire portrait image itself. Use your hands. Play around by placing your arms closer to your face and away from your face. This helps provide a slimmer profile.
