Want to Act Like a Model? Read the Picture Perfect Posing Book Review
Glad you stopped by. This section covers model posing for photographers who want to
improve their craft. It’s called Picture Perfect and I believe you’ll see why the name really fits when you read this review – and of course the book itself.
Lessons Learned in Photography and Modeling
The tutorial turned book is by Roberto Valenzuela and you’ll come away with some good working knowledge about poses.
Model photographer Roberto Valenzuela has a tested performance history for teaching and explaining hard ideas to photographers of all skill levels.
Keeping it Simple
His remarkable capability to break down complicated ideas into reasonable, approachable aspects that professional photographers can really understand.
Then they use their brand-new found knowledge to improve their photography– made his very first book, Picture Perfect Practice, a breakout success.
In Picture Perfect Posing, Roberto handles the art of posing. For many photographers, after learning how to make up an image and even light it effectively, a picture can still easily be a failure if the pose is not natural, elegant, and serving the needs of both the subject and the professional photographer.
Instead of simply revealing page after page of poses– like most posing books on the market– Roberto actually breaks down the principle of posing by analyzing the anatomy, beginning with the core foundation: the spinal chord and neck.
What Makes Model Posing Work?
Building from there, Roberto discusses every component of what makes poses work, in addition to fail. How should the model hold her hands? Bend her elbows? Position her fingers? Should the model appearance toward or far from the camera, and why?
Everything depends on exactly what the photographer desires for the shot, and Roberto discusses the entire procedure, from the intent of the photographer through the execution of the pose.
For those who have been discouraged by an inability to pose their male or female models, or who have simply not known where to start in order to “figure it out,” Picture Perfect Posing book review shows it is an essential resource needed to learn how posing your model truly works.
