11 ways to pose for your #ootd and make it worthy for Instagram

Have you ever wonder how to pose for your own #OOTD?
Feeling awkward? No worries. I am here to guide you. At the end of the guide, you'll know how to pose, naturally. 
Sometimes, we always go out for cafe hopping and we always passed by this cool alley/place/chair/dumpster and we are tempted to take a picture with it, but we just don't know how to pose.
This guide consists of 11 poses in different areas and slightly, a different pose.
HERE WE GO!
1. "DO NOT MOVE A MUSCLE POSE"
Just relax your face and your muscle, stand straight when you're taking a straight shot. Your eyes must look into the camera to achieve greater results. Your arms must relax too. In your mind, just think that you're a goner and stand there. 
2. " EVERYTHING ALSO HOLD  + BONUS CROSS LEG"

Whether if you're wearing your favourite shades, hat, nosering or whatsoever, just hold it. Pretend that it's gonna fall off anytime. Tilt your head 45 degrees and imagine that your eyes are swollen. For the cross leg, here's a tip. It makes your leg skinnier in pictures. Make sure your toes are touching the ground.


3. " TRYING TO MAKE A CALL SECRETIVELY "EH HELLO YOU THERE?""

If you're holding on your phone or tablet, make sure you're calling someone secretly. It can be your mistress or your ex or whatsoever. If you don't have a window around you. No worries, just act like you're looking around and be suspicious.

4. KUA SIMI KUA? (See what see?)

When taking a serious shot of an empty street, try to look at the camera like it's been staring you for a long time and you're already pissed. Look at it with anger. " EH SEE WHAT SEE?!" Body posture can be random, as long as you have that attitude.

5.  I'M STILL THINKING CAN YOU DON'T DISTURB?

I love to put my hands/fingers on my lips. So just raise either left or right arm and just put it on your lips like never before. Try to think of something happy or sad, and act like you're thinking while posing for the camera. Make sure your eyes are 37 degrees away from the camera.


6. CAN'T YOU SEE I'M TRYING TO PANGSAI? (trying to do big business over here)

This is my signature pang sai #ootd post. Let me teach you how it's done. Firstly, squat down 75 to 85 degrees. Secondly, put your left hand on your lips, simply fiddle with your lips. Last but not least, look at the camera like it owes you a meal or maybe $1,000.00 dollars. So there you have it. Pangsai #ootd pose.


7. PAPARAZZI LAI LIAO? (paparazzi coming?)

Results may vary without a mask and shades. Yes, just try to cover yourself like you're being chased by millions of paparazzi. To achieve this, try to adjust your shades and mask at the same time. Without much being said, WALK FAST!

8. #LIKEABOSS

Find any abandon office chair, sit on it with your legs up high. Put both arms behind you(around your neck area) and pose! Smile because you're the boss now! :)

9. I love the dumpster.

Lean against any dumpster and pose. Just imagine you're hiding behind the wall and waiting for the person to come. Make sure that you're wearing a mask because it's pretty smelly.


10. Budget Model on the floor

If you're looking for somewhere to sit and take a photo, the best place is an empty street/road. Simply just sit down, put one of your legs up and act like you're a model.


11. I love to look at my shoes
I'm singing my blues~. Maybe if you want to act like you're in another country. Wear long coats, cover yourself with long jeans, boots, coat, button shirts and whatsoever. This was taken in Singapore by the way and it's really really hot. Well, basically just look at your shoes and be happy! :) 
We've come to the end of our 11 poses for #ootd on Instagram! For more information, you can follow me on Instagram at http://www.instagram.com/geraldpng and you can see how I pose for my #OOTD.
