All it takes is about 5 minutes of properly posing your kit in a basic idle standing pose. It can really change the feel of your build and add character to your pictures. The best way to do this is to lower the head down. Move the shoulders up and make sure they are even. You almost want a “V” shape from the shoulders to the middle of the waist. Take the arms and bend them at the elbow, almost like the suit is ready to move in a seconds notice. Take the legs and twitch them outwards just a little bit. Make sure you get the feet to line up with the legs. Some kits have very good articulation in the ankle joints that might make a normal stance look weird if you forget to pose it correctly.
