It’s a common sexist trend in advertising photography for women. Whenever possible women are bent, cantered, and off balance. Look at the photos again but consider how the pose on the right looks more masculine or ready for action. Harry Richards Photography Jan 8, 2016 Interesting article with some good points though from having photographed a lot of lay people (not models!), I think the best general rule is to relax. Not like a sack of potatoes but try to engage with your photographer so that you’re thinking about the conversation, showing that you’re present. I’m a reportage wedding photographer and I tend to discourage posing where possible. When you’re at a wedding or event, try to carry on and trust the photographer will catch you at the right moment, from the right angle, in the present, engaged with the day. The worst thing to do is to lean away or consciously change what you were just doing. If the photographer gravitated to you, they probably appreciated something about the way you were standing more on one foot than the other or how your hands were held together. If you can build good body language into your natural routine, it’ll help you way beyond just being more photogenic! George P.
