    Product Description

    When photographing people, you can have a great composition, perfect light, and the right camera settings, but if your subject doesn’t look right—if the pose is off—the shot will not be successful. Posing is a crucial skill that photographers need to master to create great photographs. If you’re looking to improve your ability to pose your subjects—whether they’re men, women, couples, or groups—best-selling author and photographer Lindsay Adler’s The Photographer’s Guide to Posing: Techniques to Flatter Everyone is the perfect resource for you.

    In this book, Lindsay discusses how the camera sees, including how camera angle, lens choice, and perspective all affect the appearance of your subject. Lindsay covers things that ruin a pose, and teaches her guide to “posing essentials.” Helpful images build on a “base pose” to illustrate how to create endless posing opportunities. Lindsay also discusses posing the face and the hands.

    Lindsay dedicates entire chapters to posing specific subject matter: women, men, couples, curvy women, families, and groups large and small. In each chapter, Lindsay addresses specific challenges, provides “go-to” poses you can always use, and covers how to train the eye to determine the best pose for your subject(s). Lindsay also teaches you how to analyze a pose so that you can make adjustments and continuously improve your work.
