Natural vs Posed?

I was going to ask the question of which type of shots do you normally prefer, natural or posed?

I think I know the answer though, at least for most people. For me anyway theres always a lot more appeal in a natural looking shot. I'm saying natural looking, as it can still be a posed setup shot. Like this one for example. Steph looks like shes just casually chilling out on that bed but this still very much a posed setup shoot.

I do love the stylish posed look too but something about more natural shots always seems to appeal more to me.

I thought it might be an interesting question to ask, and good excuse to share this nice shot of Steph 😄

love her pose even it somehow "staged" plus the natural light and colors.
personally i love naturally staged portraits - i have no many cliche poses in my head, so i just look for the natural pose during my conversation and activity with a model and stop her/him when i see something interesting. i know this is not too effective way but i find it as most interesting for me

That sounds pretty effective to me. Thats the beauty of this stuff, theres no right or wrong.

·

absolutely agree

I like both types I guess! Certain circumstances or ideas call for posed vs natural

·

Very true. Some of the glamour or fashions shoots I've done needed that stylised posed look. The more natural look can often bring more personality to the shot though which works great.

Yeah I think so too. It really comes down to circumstances. Sometimes you need a 'clearly posed look', sometimes you need a natural looking posed shot, sometimes you shoot totally unposed (street photography, stage performances...). Every style has its place and time.

Great shot too by the way! Very nice pose and colors.

Yep totally, no point in shooting every shoot the same way.

Steph is such a wonderful model, I don't think it is too hard to find an interesting pose ;)

·

She really is, such a cool girl too. She's easily my favourite model to work with.

I've always been attracted more to natural pose than posed.

·

I can totally understand that alright. I do love that authentic feel too.

Lovely shot but I think that girl can stand on her head and she will still look great
