Hi, my name is Renee Barca. I work at IMM Model Agency. I'm going to speak to you about how the modelling industry works.
I'm going to explain to you how to pose like a model. The only way to do this is through lots and lots of practice. I tell all of my models to get in front of a mirror, to sit there and pretend they are on a photo shoot and strike different poses.
Everybody has their own imperfections and as a result, you need to pose to hide these imperfections. If you have a large nose, you need to turn a particular way and if you have a big chin, you need to pose another way. The only way to do this is through lots and lots of practice.
Example: if you have a big jaw line, the best way to pose is to turn your head and look up so you are concealing your jaw. If you have a large nose, the best thing to do is to keep your nose out of focus so by putting it to the side is also a big help. These are just little examples, not gospel, so therefore, the only way to figure out what the best pose for you is to practice and practice and practice in front of a mirror.
The best way to pose while standing up is to put all your weight on your back leg and then to put your front leg on front which has no weight on it whatsoever. The best way to look slender is to bend your front leg and put your hand on your hip and to arch your back so that your bottom sticks out and your chest comes forward. This creates a slender look and makes your stomach flatter, your bust bigger, and it makes your bottom look a lot nicer.
For men, obviously, they don't need to worry about this, so men, the best way to stand, again, with hand on hip, just to show definition of your body and to smile and look at the camera. As you can see here, this model here is doing the exact pose that I was just saying: weight on your back leg, bending on the front leg, and hands on your hip. Again, this shows how slender she looks just based on that one pose.
The best way to do this is to have both hands on hips as this emphasizes smaller waist and makes you look a lot thinner which is always great for photo shoots, especially lingerie and swimsuit modeling, and this is the best way to pose as a model. .
