Re: Posing for Studio Portrait Photography

If you can't find a book, the fashion shots in the mags will give you a start. From head & shoulders for hair/make-up, through closer shots for accessories to full length.

On some of the TV progs I've seen, the models are moving and several shots are taken each time.

If you want the formal 'sitting' type of pose where the model is stationary (and you are doing all the moving ) I still think these shots can get you started.

Re: Posing for Studio Portrait Photography

Yes, it must be quite difficult to get a natural shot, much harder than posing someone. You need to get some interaction between the model and the camera and photographer and the person viewing the shot.

Re: Posing for Studio Portrait Photography

Dave, I believe Howard at the Studio Group showed us such a book once so you might check with him. You could also ask Hoffy as I suspect that he picked all of this up since he turned professional but I am not sure where he learnt it. The alternative is to hire professional models who do not need to be told how to pose but is that cheating?

Re: Posing for Studio Portrait Photography

(This site seems dedicated to digital somewhat so maybe the following won't apply) A tip or two that I've picked up is; if you can use a medium format Twin Lens Reflex instead of a SLR the sitter of your photographs might be a little more comfortable because you are looking down and away from them into your view finder rather than having that eye contact when you look through the view finder of an SLR. This might make the person more relaxed and natural if they are shy about getting their portrait taken. If you don't have access to TLR camera utilize a shutter release, so you can talk naturally while snapping photos and I've found it's a little easier to direct the person when I'm not staring through the view finder all the time. It is an art that few perfect, and I am not one of them! Take Care Dave

Re: Posing for Studio Portrait Photography

Adam, I've read that tip somewhere about using a remote cable, so that you can interact with the model instead of, as you say, being stuck behind the camera. Good tip to mention here

Re: Posing for Studio Portrait Photography

I bought two Books at Calumet Photo called:

Photographer's Guide To Shooting Model and Actor Portafolios

and

Studio Portrait Photography in Black and White (techniques and images)

they are both published by Amherst Media

I found them very useful.

Re: Posing for Studio Portrait Photography

When using a long cable release for model work, to avoid being stuck behind the slr, stay very close to the lens axis so that when you do want the model looking straight into camera that is where the eyes go and not be drawn to you. You often see evidence of the photographer being off camera by the models eyes being ever so slightly away from the lens rather than directly into it (it makes the viewer want to look back over their shoulder).

Tip for all: always use at least an 18 inch or more fabric covered cable release to avoid camera shake from the cable. Short metal ones are simply too rigid and transmit vibration from hand to camera. And always have two as a backup for when one breaks, trust me it eventually will!

Re: Posing for Studio Portrait Photography

There are now very cheap but fully effective wireless remote releases for Canon and Nikon DSLRs and probably others too. I am not talking about paying 150 for a Canon one, I paid 15 for one on Ebay including postage! It has a simple receiver to plug in to the remote socket and this just hangs loose. You then have the remote in your hand and can shoot away without going anywhere near the camera if you want to.

One other useful tip with regards head positioning:

People do not like having their heads touched and any pro worth his salt will not touch the model at all. A great way to get people to move their head in exactly the way you want them to is to use your two hands held out flat as though they are cradling the two sides of the person's head. Move your hands to the right and they will instinctively follow with the exact movement you want. You can slant your hands one way or the other and tilt your hands to get them to tilt the head. After a few seconds it becomes completely instinctive and the model will move to your exact requirements almost without thinking about it.

Cheers,
Rob

Re: Posing for Studio Portrait Photography

Good tips Rob!!

I agree about not touching the model while working, especially for beginner models AND beginner photographers.

However, once you and the model have built up a good, trusting model/photog relationship there may be times when it is easier for both to place limbs physically BUT ONLY WITH CONSENT and very tactfully. Pro models have less problem with this BUT most have stories of sweaty pawed 'pros' man-handling them in the guise of posing them.

Re: Posing for Studio Portrait Photography

There were some good posing tips at a CCC meet. BillToo had a go at remembering some of them when he posed in this shot.... ( He is the one on the left)
I never realised that posing could be manly or feminine. Apparently this is a manly pose as his head is perpendicular to the sholder line.

By the way, in your case Dave, keep your face behind the camera, ignore the cable release advice, you do not want to scare them. In fact they may recoognise you from your avatar as peer through the view finder. She will be more relaxed, thinking "Oh, look its Dave from pixalo."

I am going to get one of these little beauties (if I can sneak it past the wife).

Zigview S2 remote LCD kit

It seems ideal for a lot of different applications.

If you have a shy sitter, just go behind the door and look at the screen

Re: Posing for Studio Portrait Photography

Dave, I have now processed the shots of the two girls last week; we owe them a CD.



This is a high key mono of Elly but I have put three others as well in the Members Gallery. I thought that they were challenging to photograph but well worth it. We can speak to Howard tonight about his book.
