    Flattering poses for non model shaped bodies.

    I have a shoot on the weekend with a mix of body shapes ( a weight loss group - expecting around 10 people - some have achieved "goal"weight, while some are still losing weight and are after some pictures to show how much weight they have lost) and need some flattering poses for some of the bigger ladies.

    I plan to do some shooting on a black background and use the lighting to create a thinning effect.

    I will be shooting single portraits in my home studio in the morning and if the weather is nice we will go to the park across from my house for group shots.

    Has anyone got any good examples, i know changing the level of the camera can also help

    have them standing on an angle of 45 degrees to camera also and push head forward etc, try to avoid any poses that squash say arms to body etc, you want to stretch instead

    DON'T use a wide angle lens!
    All my photos are taken with recycled pixels.
