So... after snapping thousands of pictures of myself, I start to notice some things. About me.
In particular, I notice specifics about my posing.
I used to be super uncomfs in front of the camera when Ian would take my pictures in public, but now it's just normal. Except sometimes I still feel like I don't know how to move/pose in front of the lens.
This is where Ian's direction comes in.
He always tells me to face him but look over one of his shoulders for my close-ups. Resulting in HUNDREDS of pictures like this:
Sometimes I throw a little arm action in for some more dimension, like this:
Or some jacket-play:
Or sometimes my limbs are cut off and we're left with a headshot of me looking off into the distance with a face full of wonder.
I don't necessarily think this pose looks bad, so expect to see more. It's just a little redundant is all.
BUT, I will claim this as my signature close-up pose because I'm noticing a new signature pose for my full-bodies.
The art is in the bend of the back leg. Displaying the back of one shoe while facing forward with the other. I'll give you a couple more examples to study my techniques.
I mean, how else would you know the height or style of heel I'm wearing? I do this for you, peoples!
Just kiding kinda!
