We all love the promise of spring, summer, and warmer weather. What’s not to love? The stores put out the new fashions, there are even cuter sandals than last year, patios are sensible again, and the beach/pool are regular weekend activities. One could almost go into a happiness coma thinking about it all - until it suddenly hits you that bathing suits will be involved. The mere thought of putting on a suit after a winter of soup, blankets, and hottie-toddys can terrify me back to Siberia.
Fear not, readers! You may not be feeling your best, but I will teach you how to pose your best! It never fails that we’ll have that one friend wanting to Instagram every step we take, and so it’s important to know how to look our best.
In honor of the start of summer (and swimsuit season!) here are a few important posing tips for your upcoming, vacation, lake day, etc. Hint: these tips also apply to your boudoir photos :)
1) Don’t do the straight-on shot. This pose doesn’t allow the camera to register any of your shape and angles because your entire body is on the same camera-plane. The result is a very flat shot that gives the illusion of a wider and shorter shape.
