Please don’t discredit plus size gals, because they are just as beautiful as anyone else! Tammy Warnock from Southern California gives us a step by step guide to posing plus size women to show their true beauty. Please check our her website, and her blog.
One – Posed on her side, upper knee forward with her arm blocking off her tummy. The softness of an air mattress helps her to sink in and appear thinner.
Two – Same as pose number one but taken from the side. Have the subject rotate her shoulders towards you. Again, arm blocks off tummy area.
Three – Variation of number two – a little closer up. Great for apple shaped women.
Four – close up head and shoulder with her looking out of the frame. Very flattering for every body type.
Five – This woman is laying back on the arm of a chaise lounge. Turn her head towards you stretching her chin up so that her brow doesn’t crease. Breasts block off tummy area.
Six – Head and shoulders with sheet covering tummy area. With the shoulder pressed forward and her eyes down cast, it shows a demure sexy look.
Seven – Have your subject lay on their back with their head tilted back. Use the arms to gently prop the breasts up. Then photograph them from directly above their head. The breasts cover the tummy area nicely in this pose.
Eight – Another head and shoulders shot. Use the bra strap and hair to mask problem areas at the arm pits. While keeping their forearms on the bed surface, as them to stretch up as much as they can comfortably. This slims out the upper body, neck and face.
Nine – close up of face. It’s subtle that she’s wearing only a bra and panty. Ask the subject to stretch her chin out as much as comfortable and rest it gently on her hand. The hand and arm block off the neck and chest area and the crossed legs in the background give it a sexy touch.
Ten – Use a medium-sized vanity mirror to show what is flattering and hide what the subjects ‘trouble’ areas are.
Eleven – Nude bridal boudoir. Possible even for plus sized ladies. The hand and arm cover the upper chest, the shoulder pressed forward smooth out the back and the veil makes the image soft.
