The complete, comprehensive resource for any photographer seeking the best poses, this book features one thousand images, specially selected to help photographers position models in an array of different poses. Photographs and poses are placed in context within the text, with reasons why they do (or sometimes don't) work. A handful of poses are also accompanied by lighting diagrams, to give an understanding of how the photo was created. The content is organised into sub-sections, including standing and seated poses, bodywork, movement, exaggerated poses, and expressions, for easy navigation when preparing shots.
Photographing Models features both models and non-models of different ages, shot using different lighting rigs and settings, making this book suitable for a vast range of commercial and editorial applications.
