Don't want to look awkward in photos?

Since everybody’s circling back to the retro aesthetic these days, it seems like film’s making a comeback too, especially with so many people carrying disposable cameras wherever they go now. Film's unpredictability is part of its appeal but you really have to practice the art of letting go when it comes to how your photos will turn out. That said, while it’s mainly a spontaneous medium, there’s one thing that’s still in your control and that’s how you want to pose for the camera. Yep, it’s something you have to think about too. After all, you wouldn’t want a shot spent on an awkward snap of yourself right?

Need help in that department? We’ve got you covered. Below are five influencer-approved pose ideas for your next film shoot. 

5 Pose Pegs for Your Next Film Camera Shoot, According to Influencers:

1. Bella Racelis

Content creator Bella Racelis shows us head-turning photos from her 20th birthday shoot! While Bella is dressed in semi-casual wear, she knows which angles she has to accentuate further. Try the “looking-over-your-shoulder” pose to focus the photo on your upper frame—perfect for backless dresses or tops. You can also do a “hand-on-your-waist” shot if you’re in a hurry!

Ida Anduyan has always been a film fan. FYI, #Idanalogue was already a thing before film made a comeback! If you have more time on your hands, a fun and sultry shoot might be just the thing. Dressed in basic tones with a popping statement piece as well as a bold red lip, Ida shows us that confidence is the key when it’s time to strike a pose. Show off your sharp features by simply posing like you’re just lounging around like Ida—a relaxed look is vital to this concept!
