Posing for photography, especially fashion modeling, can be tricky. In this first video about posing for photography I will give you my opinion on the easiest fashion modeling poses, and will give some tips for beginners for both photographer and model.
This photoshoot was a testshoot of a first time model. Considering I received some questions about how I testshoot with models, and if I could give some tips and tricks on fashion modeling for beginners, I decided to make this short video. I will probably make a longer video in the future with actual live footage. I didn’t plan to make this video while I was shooting with my model, but actually received a lot of questions on this topic last week so thought I’d just take you through the pictures and give my opinion.
Posing for photography, especially fashion posing, is all about looking confident. Fashion modeling isn’t about how ‘hot’ your body is or how attractive you are, this is what glamour photography is for. In fashion modeling it’s all about selling a feeling / product.
