There is an art to posing modelsƒ?ø????an art that photographers must develop in order to succeed. Beginning models in particular rely on the experience of the photographer to guide them to flattering poses, but even experienced models need the photographer to fine-tune their look in each image.
When creating images for a model's portfolio, each pose must showcase the model's best attributes, conceal any problem areas, and appeal to her own aesthetic sensibilities and personality. Additionally, each image must be designed to appeal to the kinds of clients whom the model is hoping to gain employment. These may include designers, magazines, jewelers, and other professionals in the industries where models are employed.
In this book, Billy Pegram presents the skills needed to achieve these goals. Concise text paired with dozens of step-by-step photos show you what to look forƒ?ø????and, more critically, what to avoidƒ?ø????when photographing models. A must-have for any photographer creating fashion images or fashion-inspired portraits.
