My girlfriend is a fun subject to shoot. I have no idea how to pose people I need to do some forum searching and Googling for some poses. Here are a few photos we took the other day in the studio:

I think you need some fill on her coat. Her pose in the right side is good, shoulder turn. A hairlight would have also been good.

They are pretty good. I especially like the one of you doing the POTN pose, i.e., throwing your cash away on NEW GEAR!!!

And I can see detail in the coat on #1. Just enough of the pocket, belt and pleating.

the tight crop is the best of the bunch..

but you doing the rain money dance is cool...

posing is such the art.. i hope you do many shoots soon and gain your poses from experience..

but mean while.. look at magazines and such for posing..

some rules.

1.. weight on the rear legs..put leg closest to the lens in front of the weighted leg..
2.. if it bends.. bend it slightly..
3.. tilt the head off plane to the shoulders.. (don't have the head dead vertical to the shoulders) a slight tilt will make a mug shot more interesting..
4.. never do squared on shots.. always do slight glancing angles..
5.. females should tilt head to nearest shoulder (shoulder closest to the lens)
6.. males should tilt head away from nearest should to the lens..

I remember a few threads ago, someone mentioned you. Thanks for chiming in on how to pose my subjects.
