Rate & Review

Posing portrait subjects on location requires a skill set that differs from what photographers rely on when working in the studio. Without posing stools and tables, set lights, and an array of props to tuck their subjects behind, a location session can prove more challenging—and less productive—for the unprepared photographer. In this book, Smith teaches the basics of great head-to-toe posing. He shows you the classical approaches used to create a pleasing rendition of the human form, as well as how and when improvising or breaking the rules of traditional posing will yield a portrait that will please both the client and the photographer. Smith also shows you how to tactfully address problem areas, use environmental elements as a base for the pose, and much more. With strategies for posing individuals and groups efficiently and artfully, this is one book no photographer can do without.
