you know it’s Kayleigh when you hear “hey guys, welcome back to my channel” 😀

Martin G says:

I don’t know if “too many bent limbs” is an issue. It all really depends on the drama and the purpose of the image. If you look at a great model like Coco Rocha, she does so many angular and dynamic poses with her whole body and her images get attention and actually sell what their supposed to sell, take a look: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TAL35pAg_8I
Still, I like the reminders of the basics of posing. Honestly most modeling images fall into the “blah, not that interesting and nothing new” category for me.

Great video!

Karloz Monsalve says:

Very good tips Kayleigh. I fell a lot in them in my beginnings. Also I would add the shots with wide lenses, making the legs look short but that would be for another topic. I really like your channel and your photos miss June.
What advice would you give to someone who wants to start their own channel, I am a retoucher and photographer in my case would be retouching, colorization and treatment of the image, I would also like to combine it with photography. I would appreciate your advice. Thank you! …. A greeting from Colombia, Latin America! 🙂
PS: Sorry for my translation, I only speak two languages: Spanish and bad English hehe.

I would add to the list….. Dont crop on the joints….. Thighs, but not knees etc..    And never shoot on railway tracks… Apart from being extremely dangerous, its been done to death !!
