Rate & Review

In this book, acclaimed wedding and portrait photographer Doug Box provides a posing primer, then moves on to simple lessons that present an image or series of images, along with the precise strategy he used to create each look. Included are examples for creating dynamic, leading lines to keep the viewer engaged in the portrait, strategies for linking the shapes created in a group portrait to create a cohesive feel, and the use of natural elements to help build the desired posing concept in location shoots. Methods for posing each part of the body and minimizing "problem areas" are covered in detail. The visually intensive approach used in this book makes it a perfect reference that allows readers to quickly re-create a portrait look that suits their client or subject grouping, regardless of their proficiency in technical posing.
