How to Flaunt Your Assets Like A Real Super Model
The #1 FAQ I received from many is “Who take your photos?“. The simple truth is whoever I am traveling with, or even strangers by the street. This set of photos however, was taken by my new #BFF, Yvonne.
If you love the beach, sand, sea, and enjoy being immersed in all 3 elements while having sunny photographs captured like we do, then I’d say your best travel partner for a getaway like that is a girl friend who doesn’t mind working the camera.
Another truth be told; initially we didn’t know what to do with ourselves when we were each other’s subject in front of the camera. Our background was the same crystal-washed blue and after 10 shots, our pictures started looking more or less the same. That’s when I had the idea to first grab a drink while we bookmark Victoria Secret models’ poses we find via Instagram which we’d like to try out. Here are 15 of our favourite poses, plus the tips we self-learned from the process!
1. The Conservative Victoria
How to: Lie on your belly where the sea meets the sand.
Camera: Facing subject’s face at the same height.
Best for: Beginners. Ladies who do not want to show too much skin, feel bloated / fat, shy to show their entire face.
2. Simple Sitting Victoria
How to: Sit where the sea meets sand, one leg crossed and the other bent upwards, hands rested between legs, tummy tucked in!
Best for: Ladies who prefer sitting compositions, yet want to avoid looking podgy when seated.
3. Downward Doctoria
How to: An almost-downward dog yoga pose, but with your knees on the sand (instead of your feet) and your peaches half-way in the air (instead of pointing to the air).
Best for: Ladies who want their peaches to look curvier.
4. Candid Candy Victoria
How to: Since you’re already wet, get on with it! With your knees and palms still in the sand, turn your body towards the camera and throw your gaze left / right.
Best for: Ladies who prefer a more candid approach.
5. Miss Lusty Victoria
How to: Tuck your knees under your peaches with one hand in your hair and the other almost ‘touching yourself’. It should only be suggestive.
Best for: Ladies who want a damn sexc shot for keeps.
6. ‘Nude’ Victoria
How to: Sit and hug your crossed legs tight; knees to chest the closest as you can. Use your hair to cover the bikini straps hanging from your neck, if any. This immediately creates an illusion of a bold naked look; when you’re actually wearing your bikini all along!
Best for: Mischievous ladies with curvy peaches who like a bit of fun (;
7. Sexy Back Victoria
How to: Facing your back towards the camera, fold both knees half-way and dig your feet in the sand like it’s the best feeling on earth. Throw your head half-way towards the camera but make sure that your hair isn’t covering your entire back.
Best for: Ladies whose asset is their back.
8. Victoria Long Legs
How to: Point your legs towards the camera, folding them casually. Use both arms (one at the side and the other at the back) for support. Look at the sand and smile silly.
Camera: Placed at the same height as subject’s feet / knees.
Best for: Ladies who want to achieve the illusion of long, dreamy legs.
9. Victoria Boom Pow
How to: With your back facing the camera, stick your peaches out. Make sure your hand facing the camera is resting naturally and not awkwardly sticking out.
Camera: Same height with subject’s peaches, behind ‘em bouncy things but err slightly towards the resting hand.
Best for: Ladies who want an illusion of bigger peaches.
10. Resting B*tch Face Victoria
How to: Standing with one leg slightly crossed over the other, use one hand to suggestively touch your chin.
Best for: Ladies who want a non-smiley picture; be it with their face or body.
11. Fiesta Victoria
How to: Plant both knees on the sand, one pointing towards the camera and the other 90 degrees to its side, then stick out your waist towards the first knee mentioned. With your back straight, dig some sand with both hands and pour them down like glitter!
Best for: Ladies who want an Alessandra Ambrosio winning shot.
12. Sweet Victoria
How to: Face your back towards the camera and turn your head around with your hand facing the camera, resting on its shoulder. You have to smile in this one.
Best for: Ladies who want to look both sexy and sweet in one shot.
13. Ballerina Victoria
How to: Pose, tip toe, repeat. You might need to take a few shots because it’s hard to hold a pose while tip toeing!
Best for: Ladies who want to achieve a tall-looking, graceful shot.
14. Victoria Tower
How to: With your back towards the camera and both hands in neutral state, tip toe then turn your head around. You might need to take a few shots with this one too.
Camera: Same height as subject’s feet, pointing upwards.
Best for: Ladies who want to look leaner and taller.
15. Pool-Worthy Victoria
How to: In a pool, use both hands to push your body up. Lean your head to one side and image yourself getting the best back rub in the world for that relaxed facial expression.
Best for: Ladies who want a hot shot in the resort’s swimming pool.
