Great Poses Make For Better Pictures – Photography Tips

If you’re anything like me, you love photographing people. What else could be more rewarding? But how do you pose them? It’s more that just coming up with great poses, it’s also about making your subject comfortable. It’s about paying attention to who you’re photographing.

One mistake many people make is to try and pose everyone the same way, or to use cliche poses. It’s really best to keep your posing natural. Make your subject look comfortable by talking to them and getting to know them a bit better. This way you’ll see which poses will look most comfortable for them.

The best approach to starting to pose a subject, is to keep it simple. Let them put their hands where they want to, and let them stand how they naturally stand. Now you can move on from there. But always keeping it simple. It’s okay for men to put their hands in their pockets and it’s okay for woman to cross their arms. After all they need to put their hands somewhere. Crossed arms are not necessarily a negative gesture as some people think, on the contrary they can make someone look proud and confident. Especially when they’re smiling.

Sometimes using a stool can help when posing a photography subject. It anchors them and gives them one less thing to think about. This makes me think of a really good point. When your subject is on the stool, just focus on their face. This will give you less to worry about – less to pose. You can just focus on the expression. And while they’re there, talk to them. Ask them questions. Do they have kids, what interests them? Questions about kids and family always relaxes a subject, and it gets them thinking about something else instead of being nervous in front of the camera.

Your words and actions can sometimes be more important than actual poses. Your job – your responsibility is to make them comfortable so they look great in their photographs.
