I’ve been taking photos for my blog and Instagram since 2014. For the first few years, I felt awkward in front of the camera. I wasn’t sure what to do with my hands.

If you’re looking for easy poses for Instagram, this blog post is for you! I hope these poses help you feel more confident and help you get more comfortable in front of the camera.
Here are 8 easy poses for Instagram you can try:
Pose 1: Sit on a curb
If you aren’t sure how to pose sitting down, I recommend sitting down on a curb. It’s a great way to show off your sneakers or look more casual for a shot.
Pose 2: Walk on the curb
If you want to mix up your basic standing poses, I recommend walking to and away from the camera. One way to create a more dynamic pose is to walk on the curb. You can slightly extend your arms out for balance and lengthen your frame by walking towards the camera.
Pose 3: Put your thumbs through your belt loops
If you aren’t sure what to do with your hands for photos, you can put your thumbs through your belt loops.
Pose 4: Step one foot towards the camera and bring your hands together
Another easy to lengthen your frame is to step one foot out towards the camera.
Pose 5: Lean against the railing and extend one arm towards the camera
A great way to add interesting lines to your photo and an easy way to pose is to lean against the railing.
Pose 6: Raise one arm up and the other arm down
Another easy pose for Instagram is to raise one arm up in your photos. It’s a great way to create a more interesting show and also to show off your blouse or sweater.
Pose 7: Turn your body away from the camera and show off your profile
If you want to mix up standing and sitting shots, you can also turn your body away from the camera. I recommend turning your face to the side to show off your profile.
Pose 8: Walk down the stairs
Walking up and down the stairs is an easy way to add movement to your shot!
