Senior Girls Outdoor Standing Poses

Outdoor Standing Pose Magic – Move Your Camera

Outdoor standing poses for high school senior girls – about as simple as they come. You have the opportunity here, to create tons of variety for your subject with very little work. Obviously – the very little work part – is not the point. But variety is.

Something I think you’ll find interesting about outdoor standing poses is how easy it is to create a different image – by moving yourself and the camera – and leaving your subject in the same spot.

I use these railroad tracks – a lot – obviously. Here are four images on the railroad tracks that each have a different look and feel. On the first three images, the girls are in pretty much the same spot.

  • For the image of the girl with her hands in her hoodie pockets, I was shooting from north to south.
  • The girl who’s crouched down I was shooting south to north and just raised the camera angle to crop out the background.
  • For the image of the girl with her hands in her back pockets, I moved off to one side of the tracks and shot from southwest to northeast.
  • And finally, for the girl in the turquoise dress I placed her in the spot I usually shoot from and I stood in the spot where the girls are in the previous two images.

Point being, when you find a good spot outdoors, chances are the light is going to be good from several angles, take advantage of that fact by moving the camera; higher, lower, to the right to the left or 180 degrees in the other direction.

Outdoor Standing Poses & Lighting – Videos & Articles

Seniors love the natural look of outdoor portraits and they’re always more relaxed during the outside part of their portrait session. My studio setting is my space, my designs, my backgrounds. But I don’t own the outdoor setting, it’s not contrived, they’re not in a space I created. And they like that. Which is good news for you if you’re a location only shooter – you’ve already got a leg up! LEARN MORE RIGHT HERE
