4.Z curve

A.Z-shaped curve can be composed of two right angles, called right Z-shaped curve. This curve is only used for men's sitting posture, showing the strong beauty of men.

B.Z-shaped curve can be composed of two acute angles, called acute Z-shaped curve. This kind of curve can make the space of the trunk shrink and the lines of the body are not obvious. At this time, we should pay attention to the placement of the arms to avoid the lines of the body. If the arms are close to the body, it will appear that the waist is bulky and not elegant. In photography, we should try to avoid overlapping lines.

C.Z-shaped curve can be composed of two obtuse angles, called obtuse Z-shaped curve. This kind of curve usually appears in the supine posture of the characters. The Z-shaped curve has smooth lines and can show a comfortable, leisurely and self-satisfied mood.

D.Z curve can also be formed by the combination of acute angle and obtuse angle, which is called mixed angle Z curve. Right angles are seldom used in conjunction with other angles. Mixed angle Z-shaped curve gives people a sense of flexibility, often expressed in kneeling and lying posture.
