Portrait Guide to Posing Women’s Hands

$5.00 Free!



Don’t ruin her photo by ignoring her hands . . .

Read My Story…

Sadly, I once took a portrait that had everything…

Beautiful, once-in-a-lifetime light. Unique, gorgeous location. Effortless, in-the-moment expressions. I swore that it was going to be the best photo I had ever taken.

Until I got home.

This is the sad part… 🙁

Once I loaded the photo into Bridge, I saw a detail that ruined everything I had loved about it.

Guess what happened?

The model’s hands were unnatural and manly. She was grasping a prop like a lizard. It wasn’t her fault, though. I should have seen it and directed her.

Hands Behind Her Back

Hands behind the back doesn’t work with every girl; however it’s very feminine and sassy when it comes together. Have your client reach behind her back and clasp her wrist, forearm or elbow of the other arm.

She can also try clasping her hands together.

She forgot about her hands because I hadn’t trained myself to look out for these mistakes. And it made my entire photo unpublishable.

A once-in-a-lifetime chance down the drain because I never put time into learning this.

Instead of relying on tried-and-true methods, I relied on intuition and the models themselves.

Don’t make my mistake!

    I took a quick look at this tutorial and deleted it. The posing of hands in the sample pictures are stiff, unnatural, worst of all that the back of the hands are facing the camera. Take a closer look at the hands from the original image and discover for yourself.

    Some good information provided.

    A fairly complete list of basic poses, and explanations of why they work. The author also adds many tips about general things to do or avoid doing, and why. Hands can make or break a shot, so are important. Giving your subject something to do with their hands can relax them and make the difference between okay and great shots.

    By making ME more aware, I can better help my SUBJECTS relax — and give us BOTH the better images that we both want.

    • Hey Peter, take your time and explore all available options. Let me know how do you like it.

    not really a tutorial on hands posing. More of a general (mediocre) posing guide. More focus on arms than hands.

    Full of useful information. Well worth getting. To be honest I have never really given it a lot of thought until I read it, but it is something I’ve missed.

    Please add menu so that direct access to different poses is possible. Right now I have to slide through all “standing” poses before I can reach “sitting poses”.
    Also the text comes out too easily. Need a setting to suppress the appearance of the text for each image. Thanks
