Many people erroneously think that the job of professional models is only to be nice and look at the camera. However, when it comes to every image that is good enough for the cover, a lot of the achievement depends on the ability of the models to pose and present in the right way.

The Modernwoman staff has gathered some helpful guidance from true practitioners after studying the fundamentals of fashion design. We hope you still look better in a picture with this article!
1. Put your chin forward
Problem: Your neck should be noticeable in every photograph. Try not to tilt your head, otherwise your stare is heavy and uncomfortable.
Solution: Try to marginally move your head forward. This may be unnatural, but such a stance would slim your neck and make the picture more fit and elegant.
2. Watch your posture
Problem: Even a slightly hunched back would shorten your collar visually and add a couple of extra pounds to your waist.
Solution: Draw closer together your shoulder blades and tighten your back as it bends upwards. Solution: Do not lean on the back of the chair while you're lying down. Try sitting half turned on the camera to make your body contour more defined.
3. Change the angle
Problem: When you sit on the camera's thighs, your shape is heavy and box-like. You can make your weapons and beings shorter than they actually are by choosing the wrong angle.
Solution: You just have to change the angle by facing a little away from the camera to solve this. Place one leg slightly over the other to prevent your legs from melting and makes them look longer and slimmer.
4. Turn your torso
Problem: If you so much turn off your torso, your shoulders appear narrow and round while your waist appears large. On the other hand, you look bulky when you turn your upper body towards the camera.
Solution: Turning three quarters into the camera is the better choice. This will dilute your waist and increase the size of your bust.
5. Do not cross your arms
Problem: it seems unnatural to tilt your head without lowering your shoulders. Your entire figure becomes a formless blur when you cross your arms.
Solution: Wink your body slightly sideways in front of the camera. Put down your arms and slightly spread them out. Thus your neck appears slimmer and your corporal contours are clearly identified.
6. Pay attention to where you put your arms
Problem: We sometimes ask ourselves where to put our arms when posing. Crossed arms produce a hideous feeling when it looks natural to keep your hands loose.
Solution: One of the better choices, when you sit down, is the hourglass shape. Place one leg over the other and both elbows on top of the knee of the upper leg. Keep one shoulder upright and the other upright. This produces sleek visual lines that emphasize your face and figure.
7. Create visual lines
Problem: Standing upright on your arms can hardly qualify as a photogenic position. In addition, certain clothing items will blur together, adding to your figure width and bulkiness.
Solution: Remove from your body your limbs. Try creating straight lines and angles with them, which emphasize the contours of your figure and emphasize what is important.
8. Combine straight and curved lines
The blending of curved and direct lines is no less desirable. Stand in the camera's half-profile. Leave your waist in some apparent blank space, put one hand on your thigh, and let the other fit along your body curves. The right arrangement of your arms helps to stress your figure's lovely facets and produce an elegant impression.
9. Don't show your elbows
Problem: A arm that points directly to the camera looks shortened and unnatural. Further, it breaches the proportion of rules if one of your hands is placed on your neck and head, adding weight to the picture.
Solution: Your hands should be in clear view and be used to highlight its best features if your arms are visible in the frame. Slightly move your elbow to the side to make the visual lines apparent.
10. Imitate touching
Problem: if one of your palms is pointing to the camera, it stands out and pulls your other elements away. You will still look less in your face.
Solution: both your palms must conceal their gestures and your facial contours cannot be traced or stressed. It is important to learn how to mimic touching certain spots without contact. Another thing you can know when shooting photographs is not to put your hands on your face or head.
