I was just walking along this beautiful path and was magically captured looking effortless in the moment. OR...every detail was meticulously planned and we took a bunch to snaps to get the perfect "candid" image we liked. I won't say which 😂
A seemingly candid "caught in the moment" pic comes from looking like you're in motion. In this case I followed these posing rules:
1.FIND OPPOSITION. Weight on 1 leg. 1 hip higher than the other. One shoulder higher and more forward than the other. Head looking to one side and down. All this gives the impression of walking and creates a nice body shape.
2.HAVE INTENTION IN THE HANDS. My hands look like they are pulling my jacket over my shoulders.
3.NOT LOOKING AT THE CAMERA is great for a fake candid shot. In this case it's "oh look at that interesting thing happening on the ground in front of me. I'll pull my jacket on a walk towards it" If you post a pic using any of these tips TAG @EmpoweredPictures
, I'd love to share it on this page!
