Posing Basics – Knees in or Out
In the second installment of our Posing Basics series we will look at another simple technique to add a little style to your subjects with just a little knee action. The result is very similar to the S Curve but usually isn’t quite as dramatic. In the first set of examples one knee is turned in such that the presentation leg is turned so that the knee is bent in towards the other leg.
The opposite of this is with a knee turned out so that the presentation leg is turned so that the knee is bent in out away from the other leg. Here are a few examples of a knee out pose:
Notice that on the knee out pose the heel of the foot on the bent leg is usually elevated.
If you have good examples of these knee-in or knee-out poses, please share them in the comments or in the forum thread.
