If you happen to have a not-so-perfect body and would like to hide some of that bulge around your midsection, then this is the perfect pose for you. This gives the illusion of slimness, as the tummy is hidden from sight.
This pose is likewise ideal for shots of solo kids or a family portrait. For instance, the man can do this pose as his wife and kids freely pose around him. This makes for a casual family picture.
When posing like this, the subject lies on the floor on his tummy, and has to bring his legs up behind him, crossing them at the mid-calf area. The photo can then be shot at either normal camera height or at the subject’s head height, a short distance from the floor.
You can add background music and a bubble machine for additional effect.
