Learn Everything You Need To Know About Posing In This 2-Hour Video Tutorial

Posing your subjects can be one of the most challenging tasks you have to face on shoot-day. If the person in front of your camera is not a supermodel who knows all the tricks, chances are you'll have to direct and pose that person (or people) in order to get pleasing images that make them look at their best. If you're in the business of photographing people, you should clear your schedule and watch this 2-hour B&H class as soon as possible.

Photographer Jerry Ghionis who is considered to be one of the best wedding photographers in the world, is also considered to be one of the best 'posers' in the industry. "Master Of Posing". In this video he shows many different situations we face on every shoot and a lot of interesting solutions we can use to deal with them. He shows both individuals and couple shots, and pretty much every situation possible - from standing alone to walking together.

Some of his tricks are not more than a slight move, or a tiny change of an angle, but the difference it makes is huge. Just sit back, enjoy the break from the World Cup and learn something new.

Excellent..can't wait to watch this. THIS is what makes compelling photographs...not buying the latest camera to get more megapixels.

This video is great! Jerry is an incredible person and educator! Terrific video to get you started!

OK, this video is for free and it may be worth to spend two hours for watching even the presentation and the video quality is quiet poor. But since I have seen Roberto Valenzuela’s excellent wedding photography posing tutorials on CreativeLive, there is not a lot impressing me or giving me new information’s about posing bride and groom.

This is amazing. Thank you so much for the post!
