How To Walk In Front Of The Camera For The Most Flattering Look
The past few days I’ve taught you:
1. The Foundations of Posing
2. Posing Your Hands and Arms
3. How to Make Your Portraits NOT Cheesy
So you won’t be close to 40% of brides who have regrets with their wedding photographer. The crazy and sad thing is… at this point you may know more about natural posing than most “professional” wedding photographers out there lol.
Today I’ll teach you the correct way to WALK in front of the camera.
Remember how I talked about weight distribution for your portraits? It’s the same thing for walking. If you walk normally, it’s possible your portraits could look like a penguin walking.
So for the camera, what you want to do is walk as if you are walking on a straight line under you.
Draw out an imaginary thin straight line in front of you… then pretend to walk on just that.
Yes, it may feel weird and awkward.
But, This will change the weight distribution in your hips making it look much more flattering in the portrait.
Look at the portrait below on the left! That’s the exact technique I had Josh and Amy do.
It’s what I had Karl and his Groomsmen do!
And it was what I had Brian and Julie do here!
Hope you enjoyed these tips!
