PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY TIPS; Posing the Head 

 

KEEPING THE HEAD STRAIGHT OR TILTED?

 

Portrait photography is all about body language. So, to have successful portraiture, a photographer should think about the message behind the photo.   

 

Here are a few tips for posing models to convey the right message.

STRAIGHT HEAD POSING

The straight-head posing usually shows the determination of the model. It is a powerful pose for business headshots if you want to send the message of a strong personality.

TILTING HEAD POSING

Tilting head is the most famous portrait pose among many companies to show their clients that they are open, friendly, approachable, and a good listeners.
However, make sure that you are not over-do it. Just tile the head slightly. Too much tilt can cause unwanted wrinkles!
