The Basic ‘Pin Pose’

The basic sitting-pose we call the ‘Pin-Pose’

Here we start with the client sitting strait to the camera knees and feet together. We have the client point her feet ‘turtle’ her neck (that means to bring it forward like a turtle leaving its shell) and arch her back you now have the start of our basic ‘Pin’ pose. From here you can change it up.

1. Tip both legs and slide one slightly higher than the other or cross one over the other and bring the arms down and around the legs as though she’s fixing her stockings. This is great for plus sizes because it hides the tummy and always looks great. (Always make sure the face is well lit.) Don’t forget to have her turtle, arch and point her feet.

2. Keeping the legs together use the hands to frame the face. Play with the straps or place one hand on the shoulder and the other crossing over the body and onto the legs. Don’t forget to have her turtle, arch and point her feet. (Not shown here)

3. Raise the shoulder and ask her to snuggle her shoulder. Leave a tiny space between the shoulder and her face so as not to make squish wrinkles. Don’t forget to have her turtle, arch and point her feet. (Not shown here)

4. Stretch the arms out behind her and have her arch her torso backwards. Don’t forget to have her turtle and point her feet.

5. Bring the arms up into the hair and have her make a mess. We tell our clients to ‘Vussel’ their hair. Vussel is a German slang word meaning to shake up your hair. Don’t forget to move and close and also shoot the details.
