Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Designed to address the challenges of pleasing both the subject of the portrait and his or her parents, this visual sourcebook offers creative, evocative poses for a successful senior photo session. Through the inclusion of contemporary images from some of the worlds most accomplished photographers, shutterbugs will learn which poses best walk the line between the many expectations for the portrait; girls favor sexy, fashion-inspired poses, while guys usually want to look tough, but mothers prefer close views of the face with happy smiles. Grouped according to how much of the subject is included in the frame—from head-and-shoulder shots to full-length portraits—this manual is organized to teach compositional skills and how to direct the eye to points of focus within an image. An indispensible handbook for beginning, intermediate, or professional photographers, this book provides inspiration along with a plethora of images for igniting a creative spark.
