As one of the best candid wedding photographers in Hyderabad people assume that I am a magician when it comes to making people look good in pictures. Trust me when I say that I can compose a picture well or capture that candid wedding photography but I can’t alter your face or body to look camera friendly. But you can do that with these simple poses and tricks! After all, if red carpet models can then why can’t brides-to-be and bridesmaids?
Don’t leave gaps– It’s a basic trick but in a lot of group shots people tend to scatter everywhere. As one of the best candid wedding photographers in Hyderabad, I would advise you to avoid that. Cluster formation or standing in line together will make a huge difference to your photographs. If you are a couple, make sure that your shoulder or hands are touching each other!
Angle, Angle, Angle– Avoid direct head-on shots. Why? Because there’ll be an absence of shadows, which could make your face look wider, larger, or slightly discolored. Instead, stand slightly sideways and tilt your chin a little bit upward or a tad downward. From there, be sure to look at something just above your natural line of sight or just above the candid wedding photographer’s head.
The Old Arm Trick– Don’t like flabby arms? No one does. Position your body 45 degrees and put the arm closest to the camera on your hip. Then plant one foot slightly in front of the other, point your toe to the camera and place your weight on your back leg. This ensures that your upper arm isn’t pressed against your body making it look flat (and large). If you find the hand-on-hip pose to be a bit too dramatic, try holding your arms out from your sides ever so slightly.
Cross Your Ankles– As one of the best candid wedding photographers in Hyderabad, this is one of the easiest tricks that anyone can do. If you are standing up when you are being clicked by the candid wedding photographer, cross your legs, starting at the calf. This stance will make your hips look narrower and your legs look longer, plus it looks a bit more casual.
Learn To Smile– That doesn’t mean that you need to practice your smile instead, you need to learn to smile naturally. Smiling too wide on purpose will cause your face to tense up; your eyes to squint, and your cheeks to puff out, which even the best of candid wedding photographers can’t do anything about. When you smile naturally, the area around your eyes tends to crease a bit, which reads as much more sincere than stiffly smiling just with your mouth.
