Bend her elbows? Position her fingers? Should the model look toward or away from the camera and why? It all depends on what the photographer wants for the shot and Roberto discusses the entire process from the intent of the photographer through the execution of the pose For those who have been discouraged by an inability to pose their subjects or who have simply not known where to start in order to figure it out Picture Perfect Posing is the essential resource they need to learn how posing truly works and how they can learn to direct the exact pose they need for the shot they wan I would say this is the best book on photography that I own out of almost a dozen and I would recommend it to anyone that takes pictures of people in any situation Even if you're not in a position where you're able to pose your subject you will have a deeper understanding for what works and when to take a picture to try and tell the story you wantI can see myself going back to this over and over again and pairing this book up with another one on lighting and flash would be a great gift to a photographer of any level though unfortunately I haven't found a book on that subject that is as great as this oneThe only criticism would be the system itself and the categories within it which seem a bit arbitrary I'm pretty sure you could take the number of categories from fifteen down to ten or fewer and still keep the same material It doesn't really matter though as each chapter is full of great tips and things to think about before snapping your picture
