Posing For Glamour And Portrait Photography is all about getting the best out of your models and the camera.
It begins by taking us through the basics of posing, and some simple dos and don'ts. If the posing is bad, then it can ruin a photo, says author Joe Farace. He uses before and after shots to show us how shots will look better when correctly posed.
Also covered is what can distract from a photo as well as well as add to it, for example use of over bright jewellery can take attention away from the model herself. A useful section is one about how to hide your subject's flaws, which is beneficial for both the photography and the model herself.
Also covered is how your lens choice will affect your composition and posing choices, along with working in the studio and using props in your shoot.
Overall, this book will provide you with some posing ideas for shoots, and Farace's knowledge will help you to improve your shots at least a little, no matter what your level of expertise.
