Think texture, throws cushions, hands on bump, above and below similar to bed, cat stretches , knees up, or sitting.
- Leaning against a wall
Hands on bump, light behind or directly in front. Remember to get your partner to move around you.look at camera or awards a boob. yes I said boob, if you look down you’ll get a double chin!
- Backlit against a window (profile) to make a silhouette.
Depending on how bright it is you will need to adjust the gap between you and the window. this will either make you a solid black shape or if you are close to the window light will spill around your body.
Adjust you camera or iPhone settings as desired. If you are using a camera an aperture of 11 and above makes for a good amount of detail al though you would need a bright day.
If you are using a smart phone press the screen to get brightness and slide it about til you like it.
