Posing Techniques for Glamour Photography by Rolando Gomez

Literally working from head to toe, the images in this guide to glamour photography demonstrate how to flatter modelsí assets and downplay any perceived flaws when there is no clothing to hide behind. Detailed instructions on recreating classic poses and a thorough discussion of the 3 main sections of the body; upper body, lower body, and backside are coupled with ample photographic examples. Abundant illustrations reveal how to manipulate a modelís tresses, garner the best possible views of the face, and visually enhance the appearance of the b r e asts, arms, abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, calves, feet, and toes. Best-practice techniques for maximizing curves and minimizing bulk will make each subject look her personal best. Because of the intimate nature of these type of photo shoots, suggestions for easing into the shoot while staying on task and ensuring a subjectís comfort are also discussed.
