The best models are actors because if an image is posed, then it looks fake and is a throwaway image. Imagine yourself as an actor/actress, seducing the camera with your eyes, lips, body expressions. Be extremely confident as it’s the one thing that cannot be photoshopped.
Girls: Try to create S-shaped curves with your body as much as possible, think T+A all the way. You have to over exaggerate on camera so stick it out, SUCK IT IN
Guys: Pics look good when you have a strong jaw line and look intense/masculine. To create this look, bit down with your rear molars so that the jaw muscle pops out, very slightly frown in pics to look stronger.
Slightly squinting with the eyes gives intensity and emotion to images.
Look away from the camera, off the shoulders of the photographer but don’t turn the head too far to either side
Chin slightly up conveys easy confidence and looks great on camera
Mouth slightly open makes the model look mysterious, but not too open. End up looking like those Myspace girls HAHA
Create angles with your arms and legs. Shift weight from hip to hip to also create angles. Really contort your body to make the image interesting.
Hands near mouth or head draws the viewer to your face, often interesting
Each time the shutter chicks, change a little something about the picture, be it your expression, head position, body shape. Don’t be frozen with the same expression!
Attitude Primer: Fashion is F-You, Glamour is F-Me, Commericial is JCPenney catalog. So, take on the required atttitude when modeling.
