Through the inclusion of contemporary images from some of the world’s most accomplished photographers, shutterbugs will learn which poses best walk the line between the many expectations for the portrait; girls favor sexy, fashion-inspired poses, while guys usually want to look tough, but mothers prefer close views of the face with happy smiles.

    Instead of calling it 500 Poses, it would be more honest to call

    Instead of calling it 500 Poses, it would be more honest to call it 500 pictures. There is literally no text at all, save the photographers are credited for the photos. I recognized some of the photographers as having previously published books for Amherst - so this is likely just a retread of their work.

    You will have more success just doing a find on the internet, search for senior portraits. You will get better images and save money.
