    Interesting interior of

    You can only enjoy the good home locations. Moreover, the interior does not have to be in any historical style, it can be just a beautiful modern design.

    First you need to choose a place for shooting and test it: what kind of lighting is produced in the frame, how you fit into this place, what elements of the environment are superfluous, what accessories you need to remove or add, etc.

    After you can choose the poses that will depend on your image. But, whatever style you prefer, do not allow muscles of the neck and shoulder girdle to posture.

    For a non-ideal figure, poses with a half-turn are suitable.

    Also, the disadvantages can be smoothed with inclined poses, where the model should slightly yield to the side of the lens or slightly sideways from the lens.

    Simple interior

    Positioning in this version is limited and there are not many profitable poses. Pay attention to the portrait poses, which can be shot in the mode of defocusing the background, which smoothes out an unsightly interior.

    Carefully approach the selection of poses in the profile. In poor lighting, which, as a rule, is directed from above in an ordinary room, there may be unnecessary light-accents on the face.

    For example: too lighted forehead and nose, dark areas under the eyes, shadows from the nose, etc.

    Posing rules

    Photographing at home, forget about pathos in posing. Do not use the poses of a fashionable style, like fashion. The style of glamor is appropriate, but only in the appropriate setting, say, in a beautiful bedroom or in a large and light wardrobe.

    Gently treat the poses inherent in thematic styles: gothic, nude, dark, punk, etc. All of them will be relevant only against the background of the corresponding thematic interior.

    Give preference to the natural postures in the standing and sitting position. Positions in the prone position is best not to use. They are appropriate in a beautiful bedroom, near a fireplace on top of a pile carpet, under a Christmas tree.

    The main condition for home shooting is good lighting.

    Professional photographer for such photography always uses additional light sources: small portable projectors. Strongly they can not be replaced, but you can use table lamps of daylight. Lamps should be installed so that the light strikes you at the level of the face or neck. The distance from you to the lamp should be at least one and a half meters.

    If you only have one lamp, put it out so that the light beats on you in a half-profile or directly in the face.

    You can try to shoot with candles, but there should be a lot of them. So, for a portrait photo the candles should be not only from the bottom of the frame, but also from above. The light should be evenly applied to the face.

    For a non-portrait photo, for example, lying on the floor, the candles should be placed on the front perimeter of the body, in front of you, and, if possible, above you.

    In shooting with candles and in ordinary light you will need a usual Whatman. Use it as a light reflector or to correct the direction of light. So, for example, in portrait photography, Whatman should be deployed and put on his knees, and slightly lift the side, which is closer to the body, as if slightly overshadowed by a sheet from the camera. A white sheet will send light to a poorly lit lower face.
