How to take a great tushy shot

Every woman will tell you what part of her body she hates. But what about the parts she or her husband loves. These are the parts that you can find out about in your pre-shoot consultation. Getting stellar shots of these coveted “assets” will give the client more to choose from for her finished product – whether that would be a book, a folio box, custom prints, calendar or wall mount.

Today’s focus is all about the Tushy, which is often everyone’s favorite body part.

There are many ways to get a great tushy shot. Laying down, sitting, standing. From all kinds of angles. Just be careful not to use a wide lens for a close up tushy photo unless you purposely want the subject to have a larger looking derrière. You may be surprised how many women would like a larger looking bottom.

Here are some classic poses to use to get that fantastic photo.

Sitting and Kneeling poses

Sitting and kneeling poses can be very seductive but also can be great to showcase the tushy. This pose also works well for clients that may not have a perfectly firm tushy. Have your subject pop their booty out some to give it a more rounded appearance.

Sitting with heels is another great way to show off two of your client’s great assets, the tushy and her fabulous heels.

Laying Down poses

Have the client lay on the bed and pop her bottom in the air just ever so slightly and bam! Super sexy tushy shot. If she lays on her hip and you shoot at a slight angle, you can create a heart-shaped effect on the tushy. Also, think about using tighter crops on this area to make for a great detail.

Using mirrors and reflections in glass can also make for a unique tushy photo. Incorporating the small of the back along with your tushy detail is also a nice way to show off to assets at once.

Standing Poses

Standing tushy shots can be tricky. Te best way to get a great angle is to have your client touch her knees and pop her booty out just ever so slightly. This is a great pose to shoot from several different angles.
