Where Should You Be Looking?
Now let’s talk about the eyes and where they should be looking at while posing. There are times when staring into the camera can produce beautiful results. But in most cases, it creates awkward images instead.
To avoid gawky stares, look at a specific object behind the camera. Doing so will make your eyes look more alive as opposed to staring blankly into the void.
How to Pose for a Natural Look
Body form is a crucial element when it comes to modelling poses. So pay attention to how you are standing. To project confidence, they have to keep your body straight. If you slouch all the time, you will end up looking awkward no matter what position their arms and legs assume.
It helps if you angle their body toward the camera. Doing so adds dimension to your form and makes you look sophisticated.
If you look/feel too stiff, lean on the back foot. Doing so would naturally put you in a more relaxed position.
Angle your legs and arms, even if only slightly. Nothing says rigid and flat more than standing straight and staring at the camera. Keep your fingers loose and avoid making fists. This type of shoot is done to show full body poses.
