Let's talk Posing

Some people are natural with it but struggling with the photography side. Some strong photographers seem to struggle with the posing side of things. I had thought about doing a little series on this and possibly for the website. Thankfully someone has already started and saved me the time. @toyzology please go follow him, he’s kindly let me share here. Let’s start with the foundation to dynamic posing the “RUN”!


Just some general pointers I feel almost instantly improve how well posed your figures will look. It's however important to note that posing is relatively subjective and these aren't necessary by any means, I just feel these look better but you're obviously free to bend joints however way you want

Some extra Pointers from the group

I'm partial to in-between these 2 poses as for me personally he is a bit too bend over forward for my liking that is. But then again I'm not great at posing myself so I can't say too much.

This is what I mean, you can still see the figures face but he is still in a fairly dynamic running pose. Like we said though it is all personal isn't it. We all like what we like and we are all different.

For me, I would say running poses are some of the harder poses to pull off, depending on figure of course. Personally I prefer a fighting pose or a static pose but I rely more on camera angle to make the shot more realistic.

Overall

It's all down to personal preference and the type of figure you are using, as some figures are more poseable than others.
