Next to lighting, posing is the most challenging aspect of photography--with so many body parts to capture, the possibilities are endless, and it's all too easy to make a wrong turn. This illustrated reference provides both amateur shutterbugs and seasoned pros with the perfect place to turn when in need of quick posing strategies and fresh ideas. Containing 500 contemporary images by leading photographers, this indispensable manual explains posing fundamentals as well as how to create a flattering, feature-specific photograph--one that focuses on the head, shoulders, arms, torso, or feet--in different levels of close-ups, from head-shots to full-lengths.

Our customer reviews

Looking at the google book preview.. it's pretty bad. I can't imagine anyone wanting to actually use the poses shown in the preview. Just a bunch of "glamor shot" stlye cheesey poses. Some of the things these models are asked to do with their hands/arms.. horrible. At the very least, look at the book preview before you buy. If those are the types of poses (remember it's about poses, not how to get the pretty girls or how to process the images like the ones you see) you want to shoot, then by all means do so.. I think they're horrible. Alshow more
