Item Description...
With detailed discussions and eye-catching, dynamic images, this guidebook shows professional photographers how to masterfully create beautiful images of a model to achieve any creative objective. Instructions illustrate basic poses as well as a host of subtle variations to provide photographers with an endless array of looks for editorial fashion shots, athletics, glamour or nude photography, and shots designed to show curves, reveal personality, or showcase the hands, hair, or legs. This comprehensive resource also provides expert advice on conducting a successful session, how to work with the model, how to work with a support staff of image stylists, and tips for designing a high-quality portfolio. Additional lessons provide a start-to-finish analysis of four different shooting sessions, each with a different model and a different objective.

Outstanding Dedication to the Art  Oct 29, 2008
How can you capture the natural beauty with a camera? A daunting question perhaps. This book shows you how. It is very dedicated to the art form and its subject and it shows. Another immensity erotic photographic treatise. I highly recommend this one.
Great for photographer and aspiring model.  Oct 13, 2008
I'm planning on doing senior portraits for high school kids in the near future and wanted to know some of the finer points about posing people. This book does go into great detail on things that my other books (see my reviews) doesn't. For example, the hand can be placed in graceful positions or it can really throw off an other wise good shot. For a gal that wants to be a model, this will help you to understand what the photographer is trying to do, and how you can avoid positions that he would ask you to change. In posing a model, you are not just out to get a picture of the person, but you are using the person to sell the product. This book will show how to use the model to draw your attention to the product. Where as in a portrait shot you are probably just drawing your attention to the subjects eyes and the other features sort of take a secondary place. I think there is enough in this book to help you avoid some common errors. I rate books on how they might have prevented me from making an error that would cost me the price of the book. If you shoot a session and every shot has the same major flaw that the book showed was a no no, you have lost the price of the book many times over. On the other hand, if the book has showed you how to make that shot better, and you make a chunk of change from it, then the book has done its job. I think this book will pay for itself in the long run. Thanks, Ric.
Great for beginners and more advanced amateurs too  Aug 29, 2008
Finding a good book on posing isn't easy. I think this is one of the best. As a photographer who works mostly with models and portrait work, with a lot of photo shoots behind me, I still found a lot of the ideas presented here to be excellent. I would recommend this to photographers just getting into photographing people and even advanced amateurs. It's good to see someone finally wrote a useful book on this topic!
Extremely helpful resource  Aug 18, 2008
I've not been shooting models for very long, so I'd say that I am in the beginner/intermediate category.

So far, I've been tearing out photos from Vogue, Numero, French and others and tried to duplicate and then improvise, but I've always felt that posing and placement of the models was kind of mysterious and "difficult" to get a real grip on. (how to elongate a model, how to make the butt smaller, how to pose the model in a way that leads the eye trough the photo etc)

-So I've basically used "what looks good" thus far (and I see after reading this book, that some of my past shoots have lots of room for improvement :) )

- It can be easy to get lost in the process during a shoot, thinking and stressing to get the light right, -and forget to instruct and help and tweak the model correctly, often resulting in photos that need to be cropped to hide bad hands, or simply scrapped due to a bad pose, caused by bad instructions, for example.
(I mainly work with new/inexperienced models and often need to instruct and tweak their pose, this is a great learning tool for both model and photographer)

I mean, I've managed "fair" trough improvisation, try/fail, but it was only after reading this book that I started to really understand more on how and why this and that works - and why some of my previous attempts have failed.

The book is comprehensive and well laid out, it covers and explains the cause and effect from posing the feet and legs, to fingers, hands and arms and also the body and face.

I think that the photos in the book compliment the text very well, what I really liked, was that the author not only show the "best" pose, he also often show everything from bad, to fair, to good to excellent posing -and all complemented with very understandable text captions.

I've seen enough tutorials from the classic 70's to know that this wasn't what I was looking for, this book is fresh, modern (imo) and is written by a guy that not only knows his craft, he also knows the industry very well.

Highly recommended!

Full of practical tips and pearls  Jul 14, 2008
Pros: Well written easy to read and follow. I learned a great deal regarding posing and composition, what makes a pose good vs not so good (which may differ depending on the photo shoot target customer / audience).

Excellent content on posing hands, head, shoulders and legs.

Good intro on how to pursue putting together a decent portfolio for both the model and the photographer.

Cons: Some of the photos were quite dated, struck me as being one or two decades old.

All in all, I am very happy with this book. Highly recommended reading for the aspiring portrait and event photographer.
