Posing Guide

In light of that whole Alec Baldwin and Filipina mail order bride joke brouhaha, I saw this poster at the photo developing shop the other day. I wanted to print some photos (white border please) for a scrapbook project.

Anyhoo, I simply could not believe my eyes when I saw this on the wall. Now I know why some photos look a certain ‘way’.

Posing Guide for Filipina Mail Order Brides

I wish I brought my camera with me (instead of using my cell) to get a clearer picture. I laughed so hard when I saw the poster until it hit me.

Here in the Philippines, photo developing shops also act as mini studios where anyone under the sun could get photos taken for whatever purpose. When you look at the poster, half of those poses are so sexually-charged and sleazy. It’s almost bone-chilling to think of a photographer to use the said guide as a point of reference to unsuspecting gullible souls.

I dunno. What do you think?


  1. THat guide is funny. Especially the one with the “model” on all fours. There is the one that 8th from the right top row is also TERRIBLE. Its the Booty pose with the bum stuck right in the air and backing the camera!!! What were they thinking.

    OMG! Most of these poses are done in Nude Modeling for art classes!! Hahahaha I see where they’ve learned it all!! Hhahaha

    LOL at the posing chart. but the fact that almost any random studio can take any picture is true for th case of India too. imagine a totally wannabe bollywood actress with the hands on the hip pose, wearing ReD. lol. they get their “portfolios” done like that. lol
