wikiHow to Pose (for Girls)

There are many poses that we can assume. Some might be silly, but others might take on a new meaning, once the camera shoots the picture. You do need to have a friend with you, and of course a camera, but even a cell phone camera will do. That way no one will know that you are only posing when you assume certain positions.

  8. Image titled Pose (for Girls) Step 8
    Remember relax into it and if it's a real "you" pose then it should come naturally. Remember people want to talk to people who look natural, confident and not fake so don't do the whole "caked in makeup, flash in the mirror, body out" if this isn't you because you'll give a false image.
    • However if that is you and you want a sexy picture in underwear for example make it subtly sexy. Pull a pout, curve your body and maybe make a suggestive gesture such as holding your thong down or your finger in your mouth.
    • Remember a sexy smile can be achieved by tilting the head to the side and back and putting your tongue behind your teeth.
    • Be careful with pictures like this though! Make sure you look at it intently for a long time before you upload just in case of any little issue that you may notice later for example your underwear on the floor behind you!

    Think about the background of your picture. It should not be busy and should help focus on the attention on you for example contrasting colours, if you're in black have a sharp white background!


  • When posing as a mannequin, wear the same type of clothes that are sold in the store so you will look as if you belong.


  • Watch out who you take a picture with. They may not like having their picture taken, and if they notice, they might be very upset.
  • Some places can be very uptight about photos that are taken. For example, it is against store policy in most clothing boutiques and department stores to take photos inside. Some public transit stations, like the MARTA in Atlanta, will throw you out if you take photos inside.
  • If you do give your camera or cell phone to a stranger to take a picture of you, be careful. Some might steal it and run.
