Hand and Arm Posing Rules


Keep your Hands Soft

We're not just talking moisturizer: make your hands flow smoothly and, like with the feet, avoid sharp angles such as sharply-bent wrists. Fists are hard so avoid them. Imagine your hands moving smoothly and gracefully like the hands of a dancer. Also, keep your fingers slightly separated to give a more relaxed appearance.

A tip: Imagine you are holding a raw egg in your hand. If you make a fist, you make a mess.

Arms away from the Body

As you work through your poses, keep the arms slightly away from the body, or at least avoid pressing them into your body.
