Good afternoon lovelies!
This week’s Sunday pinup tip will help turn any photo you have taken into a stunner, it will accentuate your pins (legs), and give you a classic pinup look. On of the most common mistakes when posing for a photo is to pop out one knee outward to the side (as seen in the photo below), which widens your hips, and is very unflattering to your pins. I’m not sure why this pose is so commonly seen, but it definitely doesn’t compliment any body shape in my opinion.
The most simple way is to have your feet in parallel, roughly 20cm apart, slightly turn them out, put most of your weight onto one leg, and with the non-weight bearing leg, turn it inwards, take that knee and try and cover your weight bearing leg (imagine your legs are hugging as much as possible), trying to point your non-weight bearing foot as much as possible (which is difficult in heels), to create a more weightless look (reference photo below). Though there are many different leg lines, this is what I teach as part of “the basic pinup pose” which is the fundamental pose for building more elaborate poses.
