How to Pose like a Blogger


Have you every thought about how to pose in front of the camera? Should I smile, or should I act cool? There are so many reasons why we don't really show our teeth due to the trend and photos we may come across on the Instagram. I have received so many questions regarding how to pose like a blogger, therefore, here is my personal trick.

Personally, taking photos like the fashion bloggers is not that easy. I always asked myself (literally all the time) whether I should smile or not since I have seen lots of bloggers out there who don't really smile, and they look pretty cool actually. However, the best solution for the street style blogger like me is to do both!

Whenever I do the #ootd post for The Equinox Fashion, I usually mix these two methods because I quite love the way I smile and enjoy the photo session instead of just posing like a robot. I love browsing others' Instagram accounts since they look so good in their poses. They really inspire me to create something I call my own style. Besides, I don't look that friendly, so I tend to smile more often in order to look more approachable to the readers and followers on my social media (actually, I am really down to earth though lol). I remember once my cousin said that I should smile more often because it made her happy. While, my boyfriend always says that I look stress when I don't smile lmao.

Moreover, I love playing with my legs, and that's my signature pose. I don't really stand straight, except when I wear heels or wedges because I am only 5'2". Standing straight can make me look even shorter.

  1. I guess if you smile or not smile is how you like to pose and feel comfortable in doing while posing what matter is that you make a statement without trying hard some people go overboard and it look like they are scare in the image that looking fierce or friendly. You should do you it what makes you different from others love the jacket.

  2. I think it depends on the look you're going for really if it's a fun look I'm all about the silly faces and poses, I think we all should be having fun with our fashion and not take things too seriously xoxo

  3. I'm all for smiling (you may have guessed haha) and you have a wonderful smile which is nice to see! I can entirely understand why some fashion bloggers don't smile as it does give them that certain 'Parisian cool' look haha, though I'm curious as to what the trend on Instagram about not showing your teeth is all about? I hadn't heard about that!

    ps. really enjoyed reading this, it's like a 'behind the scenes' type post!

  4. I guess it depends on what your readers liked the most. Do what makes you feel comfortable and with new looks (photo sessions) it will come easy. :)

  5. I know some bloggers don't smile, but I think it looks nice. It's a lot warmer to see someone smile. Great outfit and tips by the way!

  13. I think there is a difference between posing as a blogger and as a model, but then I see people combining the two. :)
