Photography is complex for the subject too. Various poses and gestures often and which one suits the best is a tricky task. Here are some of the best and easy poses that will make you look attractive without much complexities.
#1. Turn your torso, or the body from the waist instead of turning your neck.
Looking back photos can be seductive and appealing if done right. This pose is not a rocket science but all you have to do is turn your body from the waist and look back a little and add mystery to your photos.
#2. Don’t stand straight, create some space in your posture by keeping your hands at the waist, etc.

#3. Fingers should be properly visible when you place your hands on waist.
Want to make your waist look slender? Don’t worry, simply place your hands on your waist with fingers out. In case you are wondering what difference do fingers play in this pose, then thear placement does play a major role in creating a shape for the waist and making it look slender.
#4. Cross your legs or standing in a way that will make them look angular and create spaces in the posture of lower body.
If you are not comfortable with putting your hands on your waist and looking like a teacup (courtesy – Twinkle Khanna’s Mrs. Funnybones) or are going for a casual look, then create angles with your lower body by posing in different angles with your legs.
#5. Always lean towards the camera instead of away from it.
Leaning away from the camera tends to add unnecessary weight on the body and the posture. Leaning towards the camera will cut out this unnecessary addition.
#6. Keep your arms away from your body, when your arm is properly visible in the photo.
If you have it then flaunt it. If you have toned arms then make those sexy arms an asset. You can see in the photo how much attractiveness it adds to Sofia Vergara without being explicit. Also, keeping your arms away from your body will also create some spaces and angles.
#7. Tilt your head forward a bit to look sharp and slimmer.
You can clearly see the difference in the above two postures. The one on the left seems reluctant whereas the right one reflects confidence and sharpness. Tilting your head a bit forward would also reduce the possibility of a double chin.
#8. Don’t slouch and sit but create angles when you are sitting.
Yes! You can easily create angles while sitting. Sit straight but certainlynot in the attention but somewhat in a relaxed manner and place your hands on your thighs or anywhere on or near your torso.
#9. Don’t sprawl your legs while sitting on the ground.
Sprawling legs might seem a very comfortable position but it will create an imbalance in the posture. Pull your legs towards your body and draw attention to your face and body.
#10. Lower your forehead a bit and look up a little to make your eyes look bigger and more expressive.
Lowering your forehead a little and slightly looking up or straight will highlight your eyes and add brightness to the photos.
#11. Always put weight on the back leg while posing and hence creating an angular pose.
Stock poses not only look flat but also add weight to your body. Shift a leg a little forward and put weight on the back leg hence creating a svelte figure.
