Bambi pose is my favorite for this season. Disclaimer: It’s not comfortable. If you are at home add some accessories around you to give it a summer touch

Create levels by placing one leg ahead of the other

When we don’t feel 100% comfortable in front of the camera, we tend to generate pressure in our arms. Whether by sticking them to our body or placing them in an uncomfortable position. The solution? Just relax. By eliminating the pressures we will look more elegant and secure, would you try it?

Step back to add rhythm. Remember to show your beautiful bag.

Photo One: my legs are tucked and close to my body. The effect is a less-than-flattering one that tends to make me look timid and dumpy. .

Photo Two: I look slimmer and exude more confidence. By elongating my legs and arms away from my body, I also come across as more elegant

Touch something around. In this case the balcony. If you want to show more curves, exaggerate the curve in your back

Placing your elbow incorrectly can cause distortion in how you look in front of the camera. If you put your arm on the side, you create a triangle, and that encourages the composition of your photo.⁣

One of the main goals of camera posing is to make curves with your body that give your photo a more attractive and dynamic appeal.

Pose without curves.

Avoid covering your body. Although I have a triangle in this pose, my body language is insecure. Create a double triangle, and lift the torso for a more powerful look

If you feel bloated. Avoid frontal photos. When positioned on your side, you look less bloated, and create lines with your body

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
