Piping Dream #43: To Pose People Comfortably (Refuting Feminism)

I’m pretty terrible at posing for pictures. I always jank up my shoulders or tip my face weird. I think this transfers somewhat to posing other people for shoots. I haven’t done it a ton, so I don’t exactly know how to make people feel comfortable beyond saying, “Ok now tip your head to the left–no my left–no, you look super great. Ok! Smile like you actually mean it–hey! You know that one song by The Killers?”

Luckily, I have Wades, who is willing to pose for me lots of the time. This shot is from the kitchen. Isn’t she just gorgeous? I don’t have to work really hard trying to pose her either. It’s like she has some innate sense of modelishnessage.

I recently learned that posing men masculinely and women femininely makes for the most attractive pictures. Who woulda thought?

Women, on the other hand, should be posed delicately, always at an angle, with attention drawn to the most feminine parts of their bodies. Like wrists.

Wades’ shot is enough for one post. Any more thoughts on posing people/me?

Ever your post-feminist,
