The best pictures are obtained when the model feels relaxed and confident, open and ready for experimentation. Home furnishings contribute to this as well as possible..
To ensure that your photos are not inferior to studio work, you need to take care of good lighting and background. The ideal option is shooting near a window in cloudy weather. If there is insufficient light, you can use several table lamps without lampshades. As a background, you can use any plain surface: a wall or a stretched fabric.
To reveal yourself in front of the camera, think over the plot of the photo shoot in advance exactly how you will pose. Turn on the right music, choose beautiful clothes, make-up, hairstyle. Perhaps you have unusual accessories or rare interior items at home, try to beat them. Even if nothing of the kind is found, in every house there are simple things that can also serve as a source of inspiration..
Poses sitting on a chair
Taking photos to their full height is not an easy task for lay models. Start with sitting postures. The simplest chair with a back can suggest many interesting provisions. Try to play with him and sit in different ways: cross-legged, spread out or laid them on his side, leaning on the back or legs picked up for yourself … Turn the chair sideways, back forward.
Many novice models do not know what to do with their hands at a photo shoot. A chair can be an excellent support. Stand or sit side by side and rest your hands on the back of the chair or on the seat.
Photos will look very interesting and sincere if the model rests effortlessly on a wall or ledge, such as a ladder, a door jamb or a window opening. In this position, the girl feels more confident and relaxed, and the picture is voluminous and deep due to the background.
The open door is a rectangle, against which the slender beautiful silhouette of a girl looks especially original. If you are taking pictures by the window, play with the curtains, sit on the windowsill.
A photo shoot using mirrors looks unusual and spectacular, but it requires special skill from the photographer. However, why not try it? At the same time, it is not necessary that the mirror be large, even a pocket one will be enough.
As additional items, you can use umbrellas of different colors, hats, unusual jewelry, natural or artificial flowers, different draperies from fabrics … Any ordinary item can suggest new beautiful poses for a photo session organized at your girls’ home. You just need to connect your imagination!
