shooting feet in casual senior portraits
Hello. My friend and I want to try to take our own senior portraits, at least some of the fun casual poses. We've noticed that lots of girls pose barefoot in sample portraits we've seen from studios. Why is this so common? What are some good poses for a barefoot subject? Is the positioning of the feet important in these types of poses?
Boy, there can be several reasons why posing barefoot keeps showing up in senior photos.
One- The Senior arrives at the studio, and the photographer and the stylist take one look at her shoes and gasp!
Two- Sometimes, even more than hair and clothing styles, shoe styles can really date a photo.
Three- All her friends are doing it.
Four- The photographer saw senior portfolios at the last trade show, and there were barefoot young women in every one.
Five- Barefoot implies informal and casual, the opposite of stiff and stuffy.
Six- Feet can be pretty, too.
Take a look at some of those barefoot poses. Do you ever see the bottoms of the feet? In seated poses, are the feet ever sticking out straight towards the camera?
