A major factor in becoming a success in the modeling industry is by learning to pose properly. if you happen to be one of the few lucky women who have the instinct to pose naturally that's great, but if not, read the suggestions below and practice, practice, practice.
1. Practice different fashion poses before going to photo shoots
When you become a high fashion model, you may be offered a job modeling the latest in clothing, shoes, hats and other wardrobe accessories from top designers.
Be prepared for this job offer by practicing poses in front of a full length mirror with clothing, props and other products that you see advertised in high fashion magazines and on tv shows.
2. Focus on body posture
Always keep good body posture when posing for photo shoots unless instructed otherwise by your photographer. to give your abdomen a more toned appearance, hold your stomach in.
Position your hands where they will fall naturally and keep your fingers slightly apart. practice different ways of positioning your hands and tilting your head.
3. Practice facial expressions
Stay relaxed and pay close attention when giving different facial expressions. when posing, your expressions should be spontaneous.
Make your poses come alive by practicing how to give the "look." learn this by closing your eyes, imagining a thought, opening your eyes and selling the thought.
4. Show self confidence with your posing skills
Did you know that beauty is not the only talent clothing designers look for in fashion models? they want a model that shows self confidence in themselves, because the confidence will also show in the clothing or product the model is presenting. your self assurance will shine through when you are posing for the camera so keep practicing by visiting photographers until you feel very comfortable under the strobe lights of the studio.
Build your self-confidence by studying and practicing. learn to say "oh well, there will be another chance" when you are turned down. one day the self confidence you have obtained will be the major factor in making your dream come true.
Now, strut your stuff and show the fashion designers just what you have to offer them with your newfound female fashion model posing techniques.
