Posing is one of the most important tools used by professional photographers to optimize the appearance of their subjects. Unfortunately, at weddings—where time is typically tight and couples don't want lenghtly photo sessions to distract them from time with their guests—there's often little opportunity to meticulously craft the best pose for each individual. As Bill Hurter shows in this book, this means that photographers need to adopt a new approach to idealizing their wedding subjects. Through inventive staging, subtle direction, and careful observation, Hurter reveals how the skilled photographer, armed with a solid understanding of the traditional principles of posing, can create stunning images. With these techniques, you'll make everyone look their best—and capture more of the emotion and energy of the wedding day.
