slhogan Posted January 26, 2009 Report Share Posted January 26, 2009 Hello! My son's studio recently had ballet photos taken by a professional--the put on a costume, strike a pose in front of a backdrop variety. We were tempted to have the photos made because we don't have any ballet pictures of him, and the relatives would love a copy. But, they were just too pricy for me to justify it. I'm decent with a digital camera and photo shop, so I thought perhaps I could just take some pictures of him myself. Then, it hit me-- I have NO idea how he should pose! It might be nice to have some shots in a formal pose and dressed in full ballet attire. I also thought it might be nice to have a few poses looking a little more natural for him-- something in ripped jeans, a white tank undershirt, and ballet shoes without socks, his long hair in his face rather than jelled back-- to let his personality show through (in addition to dancing ballet, he is an avid skateboarder and plays the drums, and he doesn't like to look "girly" when he does ballet!). Most of the ballet pics I see are of girls. If the pic is a guy, it's a professional doing some trick my son is not yet capable of executing. I need a simple-to-do but manly pose for him. Any suggestions? Quote Link to comment
