3 Easy Posing Techniques for People Sitting on the Ground

Of all the things that go into making a compelling image, posing is perhaps the thing that photographers struggle with the most. If that is something you have trouble with, check out this fantastic video tutorial that will show you three easy posing techniques for when your subject is sitting on the ground or floor. 

Coming to you from Jiggie Alejandrino, this helpful video tutorial will show you three useful techniques for posing people seated on the floor or ground. The reason people often struggle with posing is because, unlike lighting or camera settings, it is far more subjective and difficult to codify. This is why it can be beneficial to have a few poses you know work well in your pocket so you can ensure you come home with worthwhile shots your clients will appreciate; after that, you can feel free to experiment with more organic poses in the moment without having to worry about the pressure to produce. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Alejandrino.
