If you are thinking of starting your own fashion blog or just looking to expand your range of poses, this post is for you!
Personally I don’t believe that being a style blogger makes me a model, nor am I trying to be. This post is also to help my blog amongst others to keep improving my content and pictures. When I am showcasing a look that I am wearing I want it to be appealing, and it’s not easy. In the blogging world it takes a lot of work to produce beautiful pictures. Keep in mind that style blogging is a career for some. I don’t believe that I am the greatest poser, but I have improved massively (take a look at some of my older pictures). I am still learning, but I have some useful information on posing that has improved my pictures. Here are some obligatory blogger poses; learn how to pose like a fashion blogger in just 11 steps.
1. The Inward Foot
It is a simple move that makes you look cute and a bit clumsy. Attention! Turn only one foot inward, otherwise you end up looking like a penguin.
2. Give your look, a sense of mystery by concealing your face in your shots, or turning your back for a glamorous back shot.
3. I adore the nonchalant, effortless poses, crossing the street with a mobile and coffee, like a celebrity avoiding paparazzi look.
4. The ‘Seeing your shoes for the first time’ Pose
Imagine this: you got all dolled-up for an outfit shoot, and once you start shooting, you look down and… oh my, what do we have here? Shoes! Brand new shoes!
5 The Bended Knee
A great pose to create the illusion that you are taller. After all, fashion bloggers aren’t models so we can use a few extra (imaginary) inch
6. The Laugh
Just pretend you’re having a blast! Taking pictures in the street is so much fun! Or if you’re not getting this one right, let somebody tell you a joke.
7. The Tilted Head
Ah a CLASSIC! The tilted head seems to be a natural reaction all fashion bloggers have. Some bloggers always tilt left and others tilt right. Perhaps the most mandatory blogger pose. If you don’t tilt your head, you’re not a fashion blogger (yet).
8. The #fromwhereistand pose. Feet and bags are always a good idea.
9 The Good Ol’ Teapot
The hand-on-hip pose is supposed to make you look thinner, but makes you look like a little teapot. As a variation on this pose, try double teapotting!
10. Abusing background props
Don’t just use the streets as a backdrop for your outfit shoot, make use of all background props available. It will make your outfit post so much more interesting.
11 Looking or walking into the distance off camera.
Once you’ve mastered these 11 key poses, you’re half way to being an awesome blogger.
