5 MODELING POSES THAT WILL HELP YOU LOOK LIKE AN INSTAGRAM MODEL!

Hello everyone,


If you're into Instagram (social media overall), you know that a single shot is very important. Hence why, it's got to be well thought out especially if your niche is fashion. There is so much to think about! What you'll be wearing, what background will work for your outfit, what details to capture and what poses to do in order for your photo to be relatable, unique, beautiful and even professional. 

Being a model can be tricky! Even more so when you're not one and you've never modeled before. However, through posting style looks on Instagram for many years, it becomes so natural to strike a pose. Sometimes I catch myself posing even when there isn't a camera pointing in my direction. hahaha 🤣 

If you're stuck on ways to pose in front of a camera or are still a bit uncomfortable when the shutter button clicks, I hope this post gives you some fresh new ideas. You'll be a professional model in no time! 😉 I can guarantee it right now!!!


When the idea of starting a fashion blog came to me, I knew it would require of me to be in front of the camera what feels like 24/7. It was difficult to find my angels, to feel somewhat normal in public taking photos, to know when to smile or smize and on top of that to try and do various poses. It was so exhausting because it would take us hours just to photograph one outfit. Now, thankfully, this is all in the past because my photographer and I can photograph up to 3 outfits in about 30 minutes. The whole process feels very natural, we get a lot of work done and I even love having the camera follow every move I make. 

How do you feel about posing? 📸 Let me introduce you to some of my favorite Instagram poses. 

Sitting Cool


I mastered this "sitting cool" pose last because honestly, I needed a lot of practice...🤣 You've got to pretend like you don't give a care in the world. This attitude will get you there and surely will bring you an awesome set of photos to choose from. Just chill, squat, you can elongate one leg or keep both legs bent. And finally smize or close your eyes in a dreamy way while you pose through the pain. hahaha 

I'm telling you, it's an effective pose that will make your Instagram feed more fun. Also, you might start doing this pose every time. I'm guilty of this because the first time I tried it, I liked the way the photo came out and now I kind of sit cool every time there is an outfit photoshoot. Just a heads UP! 😜

Have you tried it yet? Start "sitting cool" from now on! Only make sure there is a camera across from you or people will start wondering what's really happening?! 🤣

On The Go


This pose is somewhat easy to achieve because we're basically always on the go in our everyday lives. Running from one place to the next and then, to the mountains and back....hahaha! So I feel like you won't even have a problem with mastering it. 

The whole point of this model pose is to seem like you're caught in the moment with movement. That's why it's good to place one foot forward and maybe look to the side or beyond the camera, so it looks as if you had no idea there is a camera present. I always love the outcome of my "on the go" photos because my legs look ten times longer than what they actually are. It's magical no matter which angel you look at it! 😁

Also, you can get insta-worthy various awesome shots as you slowly model-like cross the street while your photographer points the camera at a low angle and snaps away. While you do this, you ought to play with an outwear jacket in your hands or swing your bag in one hand. Movement is key! Of course, don't have the whole photo blurry, but do play around with what you've got. 

The Standing Insta  


Eye to eye as if you're locking eyes with your crush the moment you see him. Gaze straight into the camera and don't look away. Add a flirty smize and you've got a winning capture. You can either stand completely straight or twist the body a bit to either side like I've done in the images above. 

What I like about this modeling pose is that the eyes really do tell a story. Just like when meeting someone for the first time. You connect with the soul of that person through the eyes. So Powerful!!!

It's simply beautiful! You don't need much to create these shots. I would even say, keep it as simple as possible because we've already got the focus on the eyes. And guess what? We don't want anything else to distract us from that. 

Casual Sideway Glance


A casual side glance can be very powerful! Even more so if you flip the hair while looking to either side. You know, for more oomph!
😉

This one always takes me a lot of hair flips to get one great shot, but in the end it turns out really cool. Plus, you know Instagram loves the more creative photos where there is some kind of movement (something fun happening.) 

I like to think that with the toss of the hair, it's always a great hair day. hahahaha! You don't have to worry about finding a hat to cover. Please try it, your insta-likes will start pouring in.     

Over The Shoulder


This final model pose will make you ask, "What did you say"? Something you can pretend to ask your photographer as you look over your shoulder while they get the shot. It's simple and like the many poses I mentioned, it looks natural. 

I feel like I do this one a lot without really thinking about it too much because I'm always chatting to my sister. Also, the camera has become my best friend over the years, so you know, I like to entertain what's around me. 😆

A big tip I would say when being in front of the camera is move around and don't be afraid to try different poses. I started bending all kind of different ways recently because I not only want to improve, but I want to try something new I've never done before. 

Which of these five model poses do you feel like you do MOST often? I hope this post gave you new ideas for your next photoshoot. Keep smizing and I will talk to you in the next one!!!

  4. Posing can in fact be a little trcky, especially at the beginning and especially when the person taking the shots is a stranger. But just as you noticed, with practice these things can be overcome.
    Your pics are awesome, I always love the easiness and the naturality your poses express, it seems as if it was something you have always done and always felt comfortable doing.

  9. Hello dear Radi,

    Such an exciting and interesting blog post! Do you remember I told you the other day on Instagram that dance is also improving your poses on the blog? I'd say so and also practicing through the year is noticeable, you're getting better everyday :)

    Thanks for the tips, I don't pose a lot but sometimes I pose for some Instagram photos haha, maybe they will help me with that, specially sitting cool which is challenging but interesting. Standing insta is also really good and maybe effortless compared to other options!

  10. very inspiring post ☺
    when it comes to taking photos, only one styling (I recently took two and that was a mistake)
    However, in the case of posing -hm ... I usually stand and smile at the lens or combine with the pose, legs, head)
    I sometimes pose "in motion" ☺

  17. This post cannot be more useful to me!
    I'm always very embarrassed in front of a camera and don't know what to do (even after years of photos)!
    Even if I know too many model poses (in theory), when I have to make them real I feel myself so clumsy! definitely I feel better as a photographer than as a model!^^
    Gonna try your tips and ideas, sound easy and effective!
