    Posing Tips for Curvy Models: Shoot from above


    Posing tips for curvy models: shoot from above

    Many photographers photograph from above and although this is instantly slimmer it can cause distortion and make the head look too big for the body if you are not subtle in your approach.

    This beauty shot was taken from above and uses a subtle angle with a longer focal length to fill the frame with the model. As a result, it emphasises the subject’s key features and assets without distortion.

    Here’s a top tip for this pose: if you try this pose do not get the subject to look up as this can cause wrinkles in the forehead.
