I have wanted to get into photography for a while now and since I still don’t have a working photography website, I think it’s safe to say it’s been a tedious process. I’ve always been a perfectionist and I also have a tendency to compare myself to others, so when I don’t think my photos are good enough, doubt bubbles in the back of my mind. I understand the importance of engagement, newborn and family photo sessions and before I take anyone’s money, I want to have mastered every setting on my Nikon, every photography tip and trick in the book, and I need to be confident in my abilities. Therein lies the problem because photography is a constant work in progress.
And you know what’s funny? I completely understand the technical stuff but posing makes me nervous. Posing is hard! I consider myself a creative person and I’ve been a dancer all my life so you would think posing subjects wouldn’t be this intimidating — but it is.
I plan on writing a post regarding posing tips because man is it awkward, but for now, here are some of my favorite senior photo poses. I used my sister as a guinea pig to create photographs that looked natural because my senior photos involved a lot of hay… yes, hay. I hope these ideas will help other budding photographers!
Do you have any photography tips?
