Let these fashionistas show you how to nail chic snaps for the 'gram.

If you think all the flawless photos you see on Instagram take only one shot to capture, think again. It actually takes some work to find the right angles for your face, placement for your hands, and position of your shoulders—in short, it’s not that easy!

Luckily, we found the perfect pose pegs you can pull off, too! And it’s all thanks to the beautiful, empowering women of Miss Universe Philippines 2021 who are active in confidently sharing their stylish OOTDs online. Even without the studio lighting and backdrops for glam shoots, they certainly know how to strike powerful poses while looking absolutely gorgeous. Interested in doing it like they do? We got you.

Below are 10 ways to pose for your casual OOTD photos, as seen on some of the talented Top 30 candidates of Miss U PH:

1. Embrace a bright and beautiful day like Christelle Abello with this graceful pose. Tilt your chin up and place your hands on your forehead and hip for a melodramatic touch. Don’t forget to capture your whole ‘fit from head to toe!

2. Out for a picnic? Sit down and flaunt your side profile like Chella Falconer. Raise one knee up to form a triangle with your body. Do your best to shoot this under some trees to score a unique pattern of shadows, too. This will add more texture to your photo, giving it drama!

3. You can never go wrong with an over-the-shoulder pose! Turn your back from the camera but have it capture your lovely face as you let out a genuine smile. It’s perfect for wearing a cute dress in a windy set-up, and this shot of Beatrice Luigi Gomez is proof.

4. You don’t need to prepare fancy props and lights if you want to take high-impact OOTD pics indoors. Don’t believe us? Check out this chic photo of Janela Cuaton. Sometimes, all you need is your living room sofa and a natural smile. Sit on the couch and cross your legs comfortably. Don’t try to hide your arms to avoid looking awkward.

5. Let Sam Santamaria show you how to nail a low angle shot. Make sure to stand in the center of the frame and extend your arms to look even taller. Subtly bend one knee to look less stiff. This is ideal for a quick outdoor shoot when the skies are clear and blue.

7. Need another chill-yet-glam photo? Simply plant one hand on your hip and gaze at the camera fiercely. Stand the same way Princess Kristha Singh did in this photo: confidently, and with a whole lot of attitude. Bonus points if you stand next to a clear window showing a reflection of the beautiful scenery you’re in.

8. Instead of putting on your sunglasses, clutch 'em in your fist for that caught-off-guard, paparazzied look. But take notes from Katrina Dimaranan and keep your posture glamorous with a hint of sultriness.

9. We’re living for Joanna Rabe’s dynamic pose. Move your head and body as you take the photo to capture motion. Display your cute top by letting your jacket fall down your arms, too!
