When we talk about body angles, we are speaking of angle of your body in relation to the camera. In most cases we want to make a girl look smaller, to accomplish this we turn the girl, offering the camera less to see. Along with making the girl look smaller, changing angles adds variety and interest to your photos. Angles would seem to be obvious, but you might be surprised how many girls are content to face the camera head on like a deer in headlights. Take time to think about what might be your better side.
