i have a couple of friends who just graduated from a pretty well known (in the industry) and accredited Massage Therapy school...

weve kind of been tossing around the idea of shooting some head/shoulder business portraits for inclusion with their resumes if they want...

im looking for some help trying to come up with a good 6-8 poses so theres enough variety between the two of them...

other than the standard h/s shots i thought maybe a 3/4 length with a therapy table but after that im stuck...

any ideas?


-im just trying. sometimes i succeed

Just start surfing the people thread. Find images you like, save them to a folder on your laptop/tablet/smart phone and then make yourself a posing guide you can use both to consult with the client and then as a cheat sheet during the shoot.

Thanks for the tip on the posing app. Posing is a big weakness of mine, so I am hoping this will help, and remind of ideas in the field.

I downloaded the app, and it looks very useful.

BRILLIANT! Just what I was after for my portrait photography (external link). I've been using Pinterest (external link)recently to gather posing ideas that I like, together in one location.
