Comfort and curves
Let’s talk clothing. A factor to take into consideration when sifting through your wardrobe in preparation for your photo shoot is your silhouette. My advice is to choose clothing that does not obscure your natural silhouette. This doesn’t mean you should wear skin tight clothing but just make sure your clothes fit you well.
However, in some cases, even if your clothes fit well, it can still remove all evidence of you having any curves. In the picture on the left, I have a shirt on which isn’t baggy but it doesn’t show my shape, in fact it makes me look a bit blocky. If you draw a line from my shoulder to my hip, it is pretty much a straight line. Even though I have popped my hip out in this picture, you can’t really see the resulting curve.
Looking at the picture on the right, I’m still wearing the same shirt but by placing just one hand on my waist (not my hip!) it immediately cinches in my waist and introduces a curve. You can now see the effect of my popped out hip. It produces a far more pleasing silhouette created just by altering the placement of my hand. As my friend the Aleksandr would say, Simples!
For more advice on making the most of your curves, have a look at my video: pose like a pro with your hips.
