Came across this article last night in regards to posing. Now if you get the opportunity to work with a true model he or she will have this part down. But most of the time we aren’t shooting pro models, we are photographing friends, and family members.
One of the tips that I got from the article was …
#4: Chin Down
Many people will have the natural instinct to lean backwards in a photo. I do not know why, but it happens and when it does we can see up their nose, into their mouth, and their eyes are partially closed. Honestly, no body wants to see that. By telling our client to bring their chin down not only helps us avoid what is going on in their nose and mouth, but we open their eyes up. The eyes are the most important and this can be a great tip in getting them to open up a bit more.
Nice tip and in my opinion quite an important one.
