6 Creative Poses Every Photographer Should Try - featuring @felice.c0m [BLOG & VIDEO]

In this post you will learn six creative poses that every photographer should try.

1. The Thinker

Have you model cross her arms and place one hand under her chin.

This is an easy pose to direct and always looks good with models, regardless of her experience level.

2. "I Hate My Life" Pose

This pose is more about creating a mood than adhering to specific hand positions.

Work with your model to convey an angry, angsty mood with his poses.

4. "Fix Your Cufflinks, Sir"

Have your model adjust his sleeves or cufflinks.

Idle hands look awkward during shoots so give him something to do with his hands.

5. Throw Ya Hands Up
