Updated with new photos and a revised text to reflect the latest techniques and styles in posing and portraiture, this second edition of a bestselling book is a welcome addition to the photography libraries of both professional and amateur photographers. Using a method called the three Cs of posing—compliment the subject, correct any appearance issues, and convey something to the viewer—the author provides step-by-step instructions on capturing natural-looking poses in endless varieties. Whether the subject is an athlete, a judge, a beauty queen, a mom, or a musician, this book shows how refining their pose can increase the ability of the portrait to resonate with viewers on an emotional level. Headshots, waist-up, three-quarter, and full-length poses—both seated and standing—are covered in detail, as well as approaches for working with special subjects such as brides, children, seniors, and couple or group portraits. Techniques are also included for posing subjects both in the studio and on-location.
