A complete guide to creating alluring photos, this book is divided into four parts—the body, studio, locations, and the outdoors—with each covering an important aspect of posing the human figure to look its ideal best. Beginning with the basics of body and hand and head posing, this study details the corrective posing techniques that enhance the appeal of a subject while minimizing any concerns they might have about their appearance. From there, award-winning photographer Joe Farace educates readers the importance of knowing what lens to shoot with, understanding the benefits and limits of black-and-white shots, and mastering the use of a flash. In addition to real-world posing techniques, the author presents real subjects—ranging in age from 18 to their late 40s, with a variety of looks and figure types—demonstrating the effect of careful posing on the types of subjects photographers are most likely to encounter in their professional lives. Armed with these techniques, photographers have the skills required to approach each glamour session with greater confidence, ensuring that they reap the rewards after the shoot in the form of better, more salable images.
