There’s a thin line between classy and trashy when it comes to modeling. When modeling in a bikini, posing with class and style is essential. To achieve this, you must first identify which poses are graceful and not. Another important element of posing in a manner is knowing your angles. You need to move your face and body in sync with each other to show off your body in a flattering way.
As with learning the ropes, experience and practice will go a long way in perfecting the art of modeling a body-length mirror (usually a bathroom mirror will suffice if you don’t have a full-sized mirror) and focusing on your face gracefully in coordination with your body. Look straight ahead at yourself in the mirror, tilt your head up slightly, now turn your face to the right, then left again, and honestly forward again. Practice moving your face in different directions; watch your face change depending on the angle. What’s your best tip? What’s your worst? Know your angles!
Posting good posture will help you be more successful in photoshooting shoulders and down, and keep your head up. You will want to lengthen your neck, and by keeping your shoulders down and your head up, you can achieve this. If you’re posing from the front or the side, you should “roll up your booty.” Stand in the mirror as you normally would, placing your palms on the front of your hips. Can you feel your hip bone? Now roll your butt back and up, notice how you can no longer feel your bone so overpowering. When sitting, standing, or leaning, you should always move your butt back; this flatters your figure and prevents your picture from coming out with your “big” hips.
Even during a bikini shoot, your back has to be in the right position. This small element is sometimes overlooked when posing. You’ll want to arch your back, roller butt back, keeping your shoulders back again. But try not to arch your back too much; you risk looking too lusty or sexual. Bending over can also look stylish, but this is a rare and unique occurrence. Usually, you could only turn over during a shoot, you are doing a couture photoshoot. Couture bikini shoot is occasional. Your photoshoot specifically calls for a couture feel; try to avoid your back.
Your eyes and mouth are other important elements posing with class. You don’t want your mouth to hang open during your photoshoot when you pose. Whether your mouth is available in a photo or posing usually translates to raunchy or too sexual. But you do want your mouth to be slightly loosen. Loose “pouty” look tasteful, think chapped lips. Open your mouth slightly and exhale through your lips while touching your pose. Don’t purse your lips! This creates wrinkles in your mouth and puts you at risk of looking tacky or unnatural. When you’re posing, you don’t want to look “at” the camera. Try to look through the lens as if the camera isn’t there. This prevents you from looking blank and fills your photo with emotion. By looking through the lens and not at it, your attention sharpens,
Most models have trouble moving their bodies to photoshoot salt. Their photos come out “posy” and stiff. When moving, remember to be flexible. Think “smooth as silk,” silk fabric moves eloquently and smoothly, and every corner falls gracefully. You want to mimic this, moving your body naturally and gracefully, every pose you strike is beautiful. An important point when posing smoothly; don’t pose… pause. As you progress, pause your movement for a few seconds and proceed to your next position. See it as if you are walking, no one is watching you, now wait while you walk. Notice that you don’t look posey? You look natural, which is what every photographer wants, and every model aspires to.
During a bikini photo photoshoot most likely lie down at some point. When you pose, you want to look natural. Keep your shoulders back and low, and lengthen your neck. Using your hands is crucial. Let’s say you’re going to lean your face on your hand. As you move your hands into this position, place your hand against your face, but don’t lean on it. This gives you the illusion that you are posing naturally without the harsh side effects you would on your hand. Depending on your hand or arm sometimes makes your neck look uncomfortable; your face pressed against your hand, changing your facial expression. When moving your arms and hands, always remember where they are about the camera. For example, if you lie on your side with your arm stretched out toward the camera,
Try to keep them close to your body and angle your body so I,t looks natural. Be sure to practice your angles and movements in the mirror. Posing well with your back, eyes, lips, neck, and hips is the essential element to look classy and stylish. But there is one more fundamental key to help you rock your poses and photoshoot; FEEL BEAUTIFUL. It will translate into your expression and body language if you don’t feel beautiful. The photographer will be able to handle it, and the consumer will see it. You can stand out against your competition and get a high success score by combining all these elements.
