Graduation pictures are meant to capture the accomplishment of finishing school. With so many people graduating and taking pictures, though, it can be challenging to find unique poses that stand out among the crowd. Here are 10 different poses that help capture graduation in a beautiful way.
1. The Profile
A blank, nude-toned wall or a geometric, colorful wall set against the profile of your figure can help to compliment your appearance and highlight your tassel, cap and gown.
Graduation is a happy time, so make sure to capture that in your poses. Don't just stand rigid, but show your happiness too.
Remove the gown and highlight your actual outfit. Simply taking off your gown will stand out amidst all the gowns you'll see in typical photos.
4. Tassel & Profile
Highlight your tassel and hat with this unique, profile angle.
5. Happy Tassel
Every photo sessions needs a faux-laughing picture. Capture this moment while showing off your tassel.
Have your photographer capture you walking with your gown over your shoulder, off to bigger and better adventures. (Props if you actually take it at your school.)
7. The Over-the-Shoulder
While you're walking, look over your shoulder, for this fun graduation shot.
8. The Frame
Incorporate props other than your outfit. Frames can be a lot of fun to work with, especially if you want to show off your cap in the process.
9. The Cap
Highlight your cap and tassel by taking off your gown and posing to emphasize your head.
10. The Cords
Not all graduation pictures require that your face is included in them. Show off your cord(s), tassel(s), stole(s) or anything else that shows your accomplishments prior to graduation!
