Build up your portfolio with these super cool poses and photography just so you could have an artistic idea and inspiration. Learn how to pose without difficulties with the following tips Do you have a model idol? Learn everything from her – from the way they turn their head to their runway walk. Snapshots are important when you want to break into the fashion industry. Have a beauty shot (which is taken from the neck and up) before you head to agencies. Taking photographs of you in black and white is also a must-have in your portfolio. Elongate your neck for maximum extension. It will make you look taller than ever. When posing, you need to have tension in your body. Being limp will show on your photographs and that’s just lousy. Don’t be afraid of posing different types of poses. Be wild, creative and innovative. Being safe will get you nowhere. Just like what Tyra Banks says, “SMIZE!” which means, smile with your eyes. Create intensity for the camera through your eyes. Everybody has flaws. Embrace them and work with it. Having hands on your hips will make your waist smaller. Leaning forward can make your bust appear smaller. Chinning up will make your forehead appear smaller as well. Chin up + elongating the neck is the best combo to hide your insecurities on your forehead. Stand on your tiptoes when you have bigger calves. Having your feet flat will only make them bigger. For slimmer hips, turn your knee in so it will give you a space between your thighs. Emphasize your shoulders if you have narrow hips. All you need to do is turn your shoulder towards the camera and then you’re good to go.
