10 Photography Posing Tips
1. Simple window photo

First I will explain some simple props to use that you may have lying around the
house. First get your model or child to go outside in front of a window on a sunny
day while you stay inside. Position yourself at an angle in front of the window. Let
your model stand to the side, nearly in the center of the window. Snap your
photograph without the flash to keep the flash from showing up as a reflection.
There you are, you now have a wonderful photograph.
2. Halloween photo

Get camera viewfinder straight in front of the model and props. Make sure the
sun is behind you. The best time to shoot is before 10am and after 4pm when the
sun is not so harsh. There you are a great Halloween picture. Buy a large
pumpkin and some hay. Set the hay in your yard where you can see tree
scenery behind where your model will be sitting on the hay bale. Position the
pumpkin on the ground at the left or right side of the hay bale. Take a couple of
3. Lollipops and kids or adults

Take a red lollipop. Red looks better in my opinion. Have the model smile and
look at the lollipop as if she/he is about to take a lick. Donít have your model
looking directly into the camera. A red shirt on the model will enhance the color
of the lollipop. If you have a backdrop use a white drop, you can even put up a
white sheet on a clothes line or wall using tacks. This picture should turn out
looking professional.
4. Face shot with flowers

Go to a store or flower shop and buy some inexpensive flowers. Live or fake ones
will work. Pinch the flowers off the stem on a few of them. Put some of the
pinched off flowers around the model. Lay a backdrop or sheet down any color
that will match the flowers is fine. Have your model lay on the sheet or
backdrop. If you have a girl which this looks better with a girl have her hair
flowing in back of her while lying down. Take the shot with the model in the view
finder from right below the neck to a little past where the hair is flowing. You now
have a great head shot.
5. Peeking thru flowers

This is one of my favorite types of shots. Take a backdrop or sheet. White I think
looks the best or black. Tack it up behind the model or on a backdrop system.
You can find a backdrop stand that is not expensive on the internet for under
$100 dollars. Have the model hold flowers that are on a stem. Have the girl
spread the flowers in the middle and peek thru them. Have the girl from right
about the belly button up in the view finder and shoot the picture. Remember
to never shoot in the direct sun or make sure you have the sun behind you. This
casts out shadows in your picture and will make the colors show up bright.
You could always use poinsettias as the flower of choice for this photograph to
make a Christmas picture.
