Posing tips for curvy models: basic posture

For any subject a good posture is essential. Tell your model to imagine that she is a puppet on a string and to have a straight back, bring the shoulders down, chest up and shift your weight on to the back leg if stood up.

Your model’s arms should never be pressed against the body, as these will make the arms look bigger.

If you want their arms to hang down at their sides you should pose them to create triangles to show definition in the arm. Never position an arm symmetrically; always place one slightly higher than the other.

Straight arms and legs make the subject look uncomfortable so remember if it bends, bend it!
