So the day has finally come – it is time for you to take your senior picture. The day which all of your classmates and relatives were waiting for years – you graduating. All the excitement and thrill is there – now all that is left to do is come up with the right poses to get the ultimate senior picture. And this is way much more than just a picture – it should show that you are all grown up and ready to face the world on your own, but that you still got that youngster spirit. Well, it could be quite a challenge to make a pose that you will love for many years to come. For that reason, I have gathered some of the best senior picture ideas for guys, so you do not have to overthink this whole photographing experience and stress over it.
- The key is to find interesting perspectives, shoot the same pose from various angles and always remember to take a few “safe” simple shots like a headshot. If you thought that a certain pose is boring, try shooting it from a different perspective; it can turn out to be the greatest shot you took.
- When guys are posing, the focus of the whole thing should really not be on finding the most flattering angles, as it is for girls; men are much simpler. The key point to remember here is that whatever you aim to accentuate, it should be closest to the camera, and that part for guys are usually the chest or the shoulders.
- Here’s another idea – do not be afraid to take a photo of your guy slouch. You can make a rather unique pose out of this one, because no girl will dare to do it. Make sure your hands and shoulders look loose and relaxed. Why is this important? Well, if your hands look relaxed, they will definitely not look feminine. And in case they do look a little bit, try to put them in a loose fist. Guys cannot pull off the pose of having their hands on their hips such as ladies can; however, a great alternative to this one is putting one or both of their hands in their pocket(s).
- Finally, you can also have your hand in your hair – running your fingers through that shiny hair of yours can look pretty masculine; it is a real heart-breaker pose that will leave girls in awe. It’s definitely worth a try.
