Flattering Poses for Photo Shoots

May 31, 2018

Aris Affairs Photography can choose the right pose for your photo shoot in PrescottLike most things in life, not all poses are created equal in the work of photography – one size definitely does not fit all. The reason is that most adults don’t have their pictures taken on a regular basis and they feel awkward in front of the camera. Trisha Shaffer at Aris Affairs Photography, your professional photographer in Prescott, says: “I love to work with my clients to find a pose that works for them.” There are a number of things to keep in mind:

Camera Angle – This can make a huge difference in the photo you capture. One of my goals is to always make sure the subject is shown through my lens in a flattering manner ~ even if that means balancing on a stool and ducking under my lighting shade or crawling on the floor with infants!

Play – Once I’ve found a flattering camera angle we can then play with some motion to find the best location for hair, arms, hands, etc. I always try to remember that any limbs facing straight into the camera will appear shortened, which is not the look we want.

Relax – This is needed for both the photographer and the subject. In order to get a natural looking photograph, communication between the photographer and the subject is important. As a professional photographer I often find that I can reassure my subjects and get them to relax through positive comments and gentle hints. A natural pose also helps keep the subject at ease.

Background – As a professional photographer I also know that having the proper background for a photograph is very important and sets a mood. Having a variety of backgrounds to use allows the client to help create the feel he/she wants in their photos.

Quick and Easy – Since most people aren’t comfortable being photographed, by having the proper equipment like lights, backgrounds and cameras ready to go, I can take a number of pictures in a short period of time making the session much easier for my subjects. By taking a large number of pictures quickly, it normally gives us a wide variety of facial expressions to choose from – and it only has to be perfect for 1/1000th of a second!!

Let us choose the right pose for you and turn your life and photos into art. For all of your professional photography needs in Prescott, from business headshots, to weddings, engagement or newborns, contact Aris Affairs Photography at 928-642-4049.
