02/13/07: Posing for Portraits

About once a month I like to recommend a good photography book based on my own experience or that of a trusted photographer friend. One of the best books I've ever purchased for tips on posing people for portraits is this book -- The Portrait Photographer's Guide to Posing by Bill Hurter (ISBN-10 # 158428126X ).

Bill's advice on posing individuals, small groups and even larger groups is excellent for photographers who have little to no portrait experience. Important advice on posing topics such as making subjects look thinner, showing relationships within the portrait groups, and other great tips are in this book.
