Posing can be challenging for even seasoned portrait photographers. There are so many areas of the subject's body that must be finessed ƒ?ø????whether simply to best present an attractive feature or to mask a problem areaƒ?ø????that configuring a pose that suits the client, the mood of the portrait, the composition, and the reason behind having the portrait made can prove to be quite difficult.
This book provides five hundred images from the industry's most heralded photographers, presenting you with a visual reference that you can consult prior to each portrait session to find a suitable pose. You can also review the collection of portraits with a client to gauge their interest in particular posing styles. Because this book is organized into posing categories(e.g., head and shoulders, waist up, three-quarter, and full length), photographers can easily zero in on a posing style that suits the subject and the portrait concept.
This visual reference book features poses from twenty photographers, including Jeff Smith, Jeff and Julia Woods, Tim Schooler, Marc Weisberg, Tim Kelly, and other top pros.
