Part 1: Flattering Poses for the Apple-Shaped Body
We believe every bride looks like a princess on her wedding day, and what princess doesn’t want to look her very best in her photographs? Every princess, too, can benefit from some helpful hints on flattering poses! We started with a general introduction to this topic but this will be an ongoing series focus on every body type. Today, we’re going to start showing off all the assets of the apple-shaped body and making sure you’re posing your best. Here are five poses for apple-shaped ladies.
Be Aware of Your Camera Angle
To best maximize your curves and not create an illusion of widening, make sure you’re having photos shot from above – even just a slightly heightened angle will make a world of difference versus waist level shots.
Keep Your Head About You
Just as important as posing your body, the angle at which you pose your face makes a world of difference as well. Keep your head angled slightly down and tilted at a bit of an angle to highlight angles in the most complimentary fashion.
At Arm’s Length
Your arms can be a very important asset in creating your perfect pose. Holding them at an angle, and, especially resting a hand on your hip, not only makes your arms look toned but also slims and accentuates your waistline.
Do the Leg Work
To help elongate your body and make good use of the camera’s angles, rather than standing with your feet together at attention, lean back a bit and cross one leg just slightly in front of the other to streamline the body and create your own lengthened angles.
Twist & Shout
Standing straight on allows the camera lens to pick up more of your body and start to do the whole famous ‘adding ten pounds’ thing. So, instead of posing straight on, turn your body at a 45-degree angle for a more flattering pose.
There’s no more important day than your wedding day, keep in mind these simple tips, and you are sure to look simply stunning.
