Here are some of the best positions that will highlight your best features and hide the most prominent flaws.
You will be models in no time!
We’d also like to recommend reading this great post on how to choose a camera, as having a good camera can help alot here as well.
This is a great angle that always make you look thin. The model looks directly into the camera, her chin is turned down and her shoulders up to the top. ((c) Ali ilker Elci)
Sometimes the most direct positions are the best. Here the model’s body weight is on one leg, bending her overall stand lightly so that that her shadow is in the form of a S. Photography: (с) Tjipto Suparto
Here the model lightly touches a vertical surface, like a tree or a wall with both hands. This is a great position for a portrait image. ((с) Konstantin Lelyak)
If a model has long hair definitely try to shoot her when she’s in motion. A good way to do that is to film her when she turns her head to you quickly. ((с) Mariya Petrova)
This is a wonderful and comfortable position you can use when taking photos at home, in a studio and other locations. ((с) Christian Teß)
This is a great position when the model sitting on a couch
This is a great option when the model sits on the floor. You can shoot it from different angles. ((c) Ben Heys)
This is a great position for an artistic picture. There are several positions for the head, arms and legs that can be used. ((c) Vladimir Zhukov)
There is a belief that arms and legs combined together create a psychological barrier between people, and therefore it is not recommended for photographers. However, we recommend that you try to take a picture when the hands of the model are combined below her chest.
But you don’t always have to worry about where your hands are. It’s fine to keep them comfortable in the sides of the body. The same goes for the legs, but remember that your weight should always be on one leg only. ((c) Andy Quarius)
This position is ideal for photo in full length. The model’s arms should be inside the pockets, or touched. ((c) Alexander Loginov)
Hands behind the back is an interesting idea, this position provides the model an open and honest look. It’s also possible she lean on a wall in this position. ((c) Ali ilker Elci)
Letting the model sit or lean on something is also a good idea. It can work in the studio and outside. ((c) Marco Ciofalo Digispace)

This interesting position is looking down. Half the upper body of the model should be lifted, as her head should be tilted downward. Legs are curved and knees and feet are combined. ((c) Alexander Loginov)

Beautiful position that brings out the passion and femininity of the model. ((c) Karen Abramyan)
The most important thing in this position is proper position of the legs. In addition, to get a better effect, the model has to wear high heels. ((с) Marco Ciofalo Digispace)
Lovely sentimental position. The model sits on the knees, but not leaning too hard on the feet. She needs to look over the shoulder. ((с) Brian Storey)
Great pose for a photo at full length near a wall. The back of the model should be in the center of the image. ((с) KKaren Abramyan)
And finally we have this elegant position. The model should rest easy ahead while she sits on the edge of the couch, bed or bench. ((с) Yuliya Sariy)
