Overview

Often overshadowed by complicated lighting techniques or advanced postproduction tips, this resource seeks to remind the professional photographer of the fundamental importance of a subject's pose. Conveniently designed in two-page spreads—a striking portrait on one side, a comprehensive how-to of the strategies used on the other—this reference includes countless techniques for studio sessions as well as outdoor and location shoots, with individuals or groups, male or female clients, and in sitting, standing, or lying poses. With advice from a well-known and respected professional, it covers all the basics, showing how to emphasize a client's assets and downplay perceived flaws, how to create a cohesive, engaging group photo, how to use natural elements on location to enhance an image, and how to ensure that the result flatters the subject and adds the essential professional polish to an image.

I am an amateur photographer, that is just getting into how to pose people for professional portraits. I loved Doug Box's Guide to Posing as it gave me a great foundation for learning the basics. It showed me several pictures on how to pose the hands. I also loved the section on how to pose groups of people. This has definitely been a challenge for me in the past. It goes over how to pose men, women, couples, brides and grooms, kids, teens, and groups of people. If you are looking for basic guidance on how to pose people, then this is the book for you. If you already know this information, then you maybe disappointed with this book.

Maybe not quite the depth I was hoping for, but a lot of good information. Definitely a good start and a good read if you're new to portraiture or just rusty as I am.

This instruction is the foundation of all posing. You will use this in every shot you take especially if you want to break the rules the right way. A must for the beginner if you really want to grow as a photographer. Benefiting the professional who hasn't reviewed the foundation of posing and can reniform them of the posing subtleties that make a photograph from, great to superior.

It is a posing book that just doesn't quite hit the mark. There is some good stuff in it, but not as detailed as I would have liked. Also the photos are mediocre. I was a bit disappointed.
