Doug Box's Guide to Posing for Portrait PhotographersBook - 2009
Often overshadowed by complicated lighting techniques or advanced postproduction tips, this resource seeks to remind the professional photographer of the fundamental importance of a subject's pose. Conveniently designed in two-page spreads--a striking portrait on one side, a comprehensive how-to of the strategies used on the other--this reference includes countless techniques for studio sessions as well as outdoor and location shoots, with individuals or groups, maleor female clients, and in sitting, standing, or lying poses. With advice from a well-known and respected professional, it covers all the basics, showing how to emphasize a client's assets and downplay perceived flaws, how to create a cohesive, engaging group photo, how to use natural elements on location to enhance an image, and how to ensure that the result flatters the subject and adds the essential professional polish to an image.
