In any given week, I probably pose for well over 500 photos.
And because I belong decidedly behind the lens, learning how to pose for photos has been a bit of an uphill journey. I’ve learned a lot in the last year + I’ve been blogging. And I’ve learned most of it the hard way.
And since today is April Fool’s Day, what better occasion is there to share some of the more hilarious lessons I’ve learned via some of my favorite bloopers?
So without further ado…
How to Pose for Blog Photos… A Blooper Post
1. Always Shoot On the Windiest Days Possible
Wind creates engaging and exciting movement… right?
Never close your mouth or bother to care that the camera is there. It looks so much more natural…
3. Make Sure That No Matter What, Your Mouth Is Open WIDE.
Because when I close my mouth I have bitch face so this MUST be better?
4. Embarrassing Poses Look Natural On Camera.
My photographer father always said “exaggerate for the camera” — undoubtedly this is what he meant…
5. Always Cover Your Face With Your Hair.
Then you don’t even have to wear make-up, right?
6. Always Be Playing With Your Hair & Accessories.
It gives you something to do with your hands all while looking super professional.
7. If You Can, Shoot In Harsh Direct Sunlight.
Because blowing out your photos makes them ‘Pinterest-Worthy’.
8. Be Yourself.
If you’re a ridiculous dork who makes the most awkward faces, run with it!
9. Spin Gracefully.
Make sure to have as many Marilyn Monroe moments as you can in life…
