You can do a few poses on a local park bench or a chaor. Lean forward with your elbows on your knees.

Aim your feet toward the camera and look at the camera.

Look for benches with trees and plants around to take advantage of the fall leaves. In this image you can see on the sidewalk there are many leafs all around with different lighting conditions.

Time of day/ Weather: Shooting on cloudy days during the fall may be the only time to get photos- don’t be afraid! Cloudy can create even light when you are posing. Aim for shooting early on in the day or afternoon. Night photographs may become more tricky to get the falls in there full vibrance.

#2 Looking back

Ideas for Fall instagram photos

There are many variations to this look. Generally you want to be a good distance from the photographer depending on what they are using to shoot with. Walk or stroll away from the camera and then angle yourself 45 degrees from the camera while looking back. You can shift your gaze either directly at the camera or forward.

Also be mindful of your hands and arms. As in this photograph much of the womens body is covered by the overcoat.

It is a good idea to choose the photos that have the right amount of headspots but also the focus on you, the subject.

#3 Kneeling in leaves

Photography poses

If you have the ability to kneel with your outfit try it out! Try and find an open area where you can get your photo taken and kneel.

Shift your weight from one side of your body to the other. It is also best to either twist or go shift your body at an angle. This way your body can look defined rather than a straight shape. This is not to change your body shape but to give a less structured look.

Also make sure you feel comfortable in these positions and don’t create too much tension while you are doing them.

It is essential for the camera to be at eye level with you as well.

#4 Overhead pose

You will want to make sure that your hair is fine tuned and that it doesn’t spread out that much depending on what you want to achieve.

Keep your arms tucked closely in if you are doing a portrait. You can also use your one hand to rest your head and another to balance yourself close to your belly or abdomen.

Common expressions may be laughter and joy or relaxation.

You can laugh and smile and hold up leaves or pumpkins for props.

This type of portrait is an overhead portrait. Both portrait and landscape modes have their own advantages to making these images pop!

#5 Use your wardrobe.

Instead of posing, make it natural and have the focal point be your wardrobe. Have your wardrobe guide you.

Try out poses standing up and at an angle away from the camera. Gaze into the camera this way.
