Quick Tip #11

Category: Photoshoots & Posing
For: Female models

When doing beauty shoots, which are shot from the chest up, use your entire body to pose, not just your upper body. For example, if you're seated during the shoot, pose your legs, torso and the rest of your lower body--don't just focus on what you're doing with your arms, hands and face/head. It will make a huge difference in how your upper body poses. It also adds dynamic and helps you get into character easier. Try just posing with your upper body by itself and then try using your whole body--even sitting down, you'll be able to tell the difference.

If you happen to be standing while the closeup shots are being taken, the same concept still applies and should also include high heels. Your entire stance, posture and attitude changes when you put on heels, as opposed to wearing flats, boots or other regular shoes. Just because your entire body isn't being photographed, doesn't mean everything off-camera should slack. Be on point from head to toe, even for closeup beauty shots and you'll increase your chances of creating numerous usable images dramatically.
