Hello everyone and welcome to the Wednesday Rundown. This weekend I learned one of my weaknesses, being able to give direction. Wow, this is something I got the chance to learn while shooting a friends engagement shoot. While working as a second shooter the main photographer directs everything and makes it look easy. I finally got the ball rolling a bit and with some more practice I will feel more at ease while helping couples or even just a model strike a pose. I have found a couple videos on posing for photographers and models. firstname.lastname@example.org
Instructing Models To smile:
A video that walks us through working with a model to get a laughing smile and a normal smile. Interesting how much this guy breaks down the details he is looking for in each.
Posing and directing tips:
A very simple video giving tips on posing and directing. Hopefully this will be a launching board to another poses for yourself.
A model takes us through some poses she likes to use during a shoot. As a photographer we need to know these techniques as much as the models do.
A photographer does a shoot with some teens. Great clean images come out of this shoot check it out. Cool warehouse location for the shoot.
