This is a mid-summer shot of Balance Rock in the Arches National Park in Utah.  It was a great place to shoot.  But, temperatures were in the 100′s on this particular day.

PHOTOGRAPHY TIP #32 – WHICH POSE?

•April 2, 2014 • Leave a Comment

What’s the one thing I fret about the most when shooting portraits?  It’s the pose!

But in just a few short years, I have learned a few things that has eased my worry.  Take a look at the following poses.  Each has specific differences.

First, a more traditional setting.  This is where all portrait photographers begin.

Next, a separated non-traditional setting.  This where you have the opportunity to think outside the box.  Break the rules.  In fact, experiment with something that would surprise everyone.  After all if it doesn’t work, your client never has to see it.

Finally, keep the camera shooting.  Even when everything seems to fall apart, keep shooting.  Sometimes the candid shots are the best.  As it turned out, this shot was the family favorite of this shoot.

There isn’t a right or wrong pose.  So try them all!

Like this one.  What’s the message here?

RYAN'S FAMILY FUNNY

Whatever you do, keep shooting!

ADORNED!

It’s easy to see why the title of this shot is “Adorned.”  It’s easy to see who is the “star” of this image!

ATTACK OF THE SPIDER CREATURES

This looks like an artist’s depiction of an upcoming science fiction movie.  War of the Worlds…or Attack of the Spider Creatures!

FIREWORKS IN COLOR

But it’s really a unique capture of 3 simultaneous fireworks explosions.
