The original title of Posing for Portrait & Glamour Photography was “The ABC’s of Portrait Posing,” which, I think explains its real focus. Beginning with the basics of body, hand and head posing, it details techniques to enhance a subject’s appeal while minimizing concerns they might have about their appearance. In its pages, I present real world 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 kind of subjects photographers are likely to encounter in their professional lives.
