The Master Posing Guide for Portrait Photographers covers everything the portrait photographer needs to know.

JD Wacker begins by re-iterating the importance of letting the subject’s personality shine through in portrait photography, as the shots should reveal something about them.

He then goes on to tell us some dos and don’ts of portrait photography, right from the start of beginning research, all the way through to after the shoot and post production. Wacker’s experience shines through here, as he gives us dos and don’ts for every scenario imaginable.

He then goes on to discuss the mechanics of posing, why some shots work and others don’t and how slight posture changes can improve a shot dramatically. What’s really useful is the pages of 6 photos demonstrating good and bad poses – you can really see the difference made by simple changes.

We are shown different poses for each and every scenario, from families, to outdoor shots, to photographing children. Wacker also goes through poses that work for men and women, so you’re guaranteed to find some inspiration for your subjects.

This book explains clearly and demonstrates well the poses, and goes into a lot of detail. Although some of what is said is common sense, within the text there are a lot of useful tips that you can learn from.
