A post shared by Isabella isabellacarrr on Jul 22, 2018 at 6: This really helps a lot Clay!! A common mistake made by many portraiture photographers is completely ignoring their own height and shooting a model from above or eye-level. How many times have you seen people run the other direction when someone pulls out a camera?
All this time the model is getting bored and losing energy, he or she is also questioning their confidence and wondering what the photographer is seeing. Seriously looking forward to every time you post!

A slight bend in the arm, a tuck of the leg, a tilt of the head, and suddenly you will have a subject who feels great and looks better.

Flilp is correct! Great article by the way! You could also have them rest their hand on their hip, or hold something.
The hands can be placed in a number of different ways, but the big idea is to put space between the arms and the torso and create angles. Angles can apply to the legs too — angling one leg slightly creates a more interesting and flattering pose..
Keep up the awesome work and tips! As long as it photographs well!
