Face Off.

Happy Holidays, wewearthings readers!

Hoodie: Marc Ecko, Jeans: BDG, Shoes: Kenneth Cole

Ugh thanks to Issa’s horrible video of me shortly after I had woken up for the mask shoot, I feel like I have to redeem myself and show a picture of what I actually look like (somewhat) normally. Which I usually don’t do, because, you know, I like to keep the focus on the fashion (or else I just hate being in photos- take your pick). Well, other than the facial fuzz which I am only growing out because I'm taking time off from work (aka VACATIONFACE). Plus, I mean, all the cute fashion bloggers in Houston already have TEH BOIFLENDINGS and this makes me saddings as I have no incentive to show face.

So I am usually not a fan of hoodies, but the BigBro got me and the LilBro these awesome hoodies for Christmas and I will make an exception for that. Because these babies fully zip up:

AWESOMMMMMEEEEE

This also leads me to another question, which is a problem I have encountered since guest posting on WWT and which lately more than a few of my friends have pointed out. How the heck do people pose? I’ve got my like one or two generic mannequin poses, but then after that, it feels like I should be doing more.

I think girls have more variety (AGAIN, ugh, I hate fashion) when it comes to poses. I mean they can pose against a wall and look seductive or they have more hair to play with and look down, etc etc. Guys, I don’t know man. What do we have? Both hands in pockets. One hand in pocket. Other hand in pocket. Hands behind back. Did I cover it all? I think so.

The standard generic hands-behind-back pose.



Well, I guess now that my head is showing, I can do the hand in the hair pose.



See... and then I'm out of ideas. Here are some other poses I thought might work out in future posts:

The pelvic thrust pose



The I-just-saw-a-hot-girl-so-I-am-biting-my-knuckles pose



The standard asian peace sign pose



The kind-of-sleazy-winking-at-you pose



The kinda douchebag-pointing-at-the-camera pose. Well, combined with jumping. There are never enough jumping shots in the fashion world.

Anyway, maybe I am making this out harder than it actually is, but, what can I say. I'm more comfortable behind the camera than in front of one.

  1. Looks like you're pretty comfortable in front of the camera too! Fashion poses are fun to make up. I like the pointing at the camera one. The weirder the better =D

  2. Don't worry Dru, you are not alone in the how do I pose arena. I have the same issues so I usually end up looking frightened or psycho, neither of which are good looks. Haha... Anyway, I don't think you have anything to worry about I think all of the poses you came up with are awesome. LOL. Specially the douchebag one!

  3. Dru!!!

    That is an awesome hoodie. I'm a big fan of all your poses. Well done. lol

    Gee, I would have bought a 18-200VR if I knew better. That's the best lens for a DX. I don't think you'd need anything else with your 50 f/1.8. 28-70 f/2.8 gets a lot of lens envy from guys but I must admit I would rather have a 18-200.

    I love the way your photos look. They are fabulous. Your style I guess. I don't think I can 'copy' that even if you tell me how you post process each of them.

    Happy Holidays. :)

  4. Is this a new trend? This is the second time I'm seeing a Robot full zip hoodie.

  5. Great to see you, Dru! We love the jumping pose- and we totally understand how you feel about the posing. Cath and I prefer the goofy grin ourselves because we can't figure out how to pose like models. I usually like how the guys in the UO catalog pose- pretty casual, but as I say, we do love your jump! Love the hoodie too!

  6. lol Dru, your honesty is so refreshing. I do suppose men are somewhat limited in the 'standard' list of male poses. Perhaps next time imitate a fledgling chick. That would make for an interesting one.

    That hoody is wicked! May the force be with you. Hope the WWT crew had a fantastic holiday season

  15. Thanks for showing your face even though you hate being in photos!!!
    Haha this hoodie is awesome ^^ I have problems with posing too. Every time I stand in front of the camera I ask myself 'What kind of face should I pull?' WHERE THE HECK SHOULD I PUT MY HANDS? You see, I never know what to do with my hands.
    But you're right, girls have more possibilities.
    The last pose is awesome though!!!

  22. Hey Dru!
    Thank you for commenting on my blog;)
    To be honest, I don't think you need any help with posing...You are good as it is...Just loosen up a bit , relax and it will be perfect!
    I want to take this opportunity to wish you a Happy New Year filled with lots of joyful events and fun experiences! :)

  23. I vote for the jumping.
    But I think your pelvic thrust pose needs more THRUST. Maybe I should show you the power walker pose, you would love it. Maybe I should do a post on it....

  24. i have to know, who makes this hoodie and where can I find it?

    ReplyDelete
  25. That's one badass hoodie, wow!

  29. You're hilarious! Not to mention, pretty cute. :wink:
    I'm going to suggest in addition of pelvic thrust and so on...the 'I'm washing my hair under the waterfall' pose. Look up, eyes closed, both hands behind head as if there's a squirrel behind your head.

    Btw. Great pics taken by you.

  30. Thanks for all the comments everyone! And Tracy- I'd try that pose, but I don't know if upshots of my nostrils would be very flattering
