I work with a lot of new models and just regular people who always ask me, "how do I pose?". As the photographer, I'm trying to move around and get an angle that is flattering for you. I'm thinking about the light, the background and about 900 other things. The magic happens while you are moving around. Yes, keep moving.
If you are a model you should be practicing at home before a shoot. Know what your best angles are, and be aware of how your face feels when you "look" your best. There will not be a mirror on set, so if you can remember how your face feels when you are in the right position it will show in the final composition. Keep your chin up to elongate your neck, and relax your jaw.
I just really want to say this again, if you are a fashion model keep moving. Dance around move the clothing, get uncomfortable. Let me take 300 pictures in 3 minutes and I'll worry about making you look your best. If you look bad I look bad so we are on the same team. Smile with your eyes and work it! Modeling is pretty fun, so look like you are enjoying it!
