Jeff Smith

teaches the basics of great head-to toe posing

In this book, Smith "teaches the basics of great head-to toe posing". He shows you the classical approaches used to create a pleasing rendition of the human form, as well as how and when improvising or simply breaking the rules of traditional posing will yield a portrait that will please both the client and photographer. Smith also shows you how to tactfully address problem areas, use environmental elements as a base for the pose, and much more. With strategies for posing individuals and groups efficiently and artfully, this is one book no photographer can do without.
