Capturing a student's senior portraits are so important to them. It is such an exciting time in their lives when they are starting to think more about their future whether they are going to go to college or a trade school or if they would prefer to begin working right away. These senior photos are going to be proudly displayed in their parents and grandparents homes and they will enjoy showing them to their own children one day!
When you are posing a senior boy, you have to remember that their photos should showcase the type of person they are. Perhaps they enjoy sports or the outdoors, incorporating their interests into their photos is important. You also want to use poses that are essentially "cool" for a guy to do. The Posing Workflow for Senior Boys is a great guide written by Kimberly Reid Photography that offers tons of unique pose ideas, different prop ideas to use and provides what she does after each session with those raw shots she has captured.
We wanted to share with you today 2 cool pose ideas that all senior boys will enjoy during their senior portraits.
Here are 2 cool pose ideas straight from the Posing Workflow For Senior Boys guide:
The squat is such an easy pose to do and it is also the perfect up-close portrait for framing! Have the senior squat down with either one knee on the ground or with both knees up like a catcher's stance. Then, you just need to play around with their hands once they rest their elbows on their knees to see what works best and what is most comfortable for them. Make sure to get a shot of them up close and one a bit further away with the landscape in the background.
2. Standing and leaning
Finding a great location for the senior to be photographed is very important in this stand and lean pose. You want to find a great ledge, window sill, stairs or even a unique building to lean against. The stand and lean pose is great because it can be very casual which is awesome for senior boys. The other hands that is not leaning can be put in his pocket and makes for a relaxed look.
