Whether you’re trying to get new photos of yourself for Instagram, LinkedIn or Tinder, having good pictures of yourself is very important in our current culture.
A common problem you might run into is not knowing what to do or how to pose when getting your picture taken.
A lot of men have no clue how to take good pictures of themselves, and an important part of that is learning how to pose. Learning to pose is supremely important when taking good photos.
How To Pose For Pictures
The most important part of learning how to pose is knowing what to do with your hands.
In every visual we show you today, pay close attention to the subject’s hands – you’ll right away notice the hands are always busy and doing something.
In general, posing for pictures as a guy is action oriented. You want to always look like you’re doing some sort of action and the picture is unintentional.
It’s the same reason why male selfies are so weird and awkward compared to a woman taking selfies – men just look better in photos when performing an action.
Some of the most common poses you’ll see men doing that know how to pose are the ‘walk away’ the ‘looking down like you lost your keys’ and ‘looking to the side’ poses.
These are good basic poses to learn right away that can take you far when snapping a good picture.
