Are you posing or do you have a model posing for you? Most likely, professional photographers are going to employ professional models, either those who they've worked with before, or by going to a modelling agency for a suitable model for the type of shoot and the type of end result that they're trying to achieve. Professional models usually have an ...

I'm assuming you are a photographer, and you interact with people. Saying "That one", "good", "extend your leg", "nice", "gorgeous", is part of interacting with people. I don't think any model, not one on the planet, would learn 1000 different names, with 1000 variation levels on each to pose, and to practice that pose to be just the perfect canonical ...

Here's some links: Modeling agency: http://www.famemgtasia.com/ Similar and very useful thread: http://www.thaivisa.com/forum/topic/558133-session-with-an-amateur-model/ Basically Noldor, without having been there previously (I've been twice but only as a tourist) it's a little hard to imagine but it's extremely easy to get it handled once you are ...

So my answer is rather to give you an option to grunting "dat one", and that is to build up a list of poses which you feel like using, and put them on a demonstration sheet where you can name or number them to your liking.

If the pose is in a context that is unexpected for the viewer it can be disconcerting. Lighting is very important. If there is one thing that differentiates great ...

Why do you want pictures of people posed in ways that they would, in your words: never ever stand like that You are getting unnatural results because you are trying to achieve an unnatural goal. Try more natural poses. If you already know the models, this is easy because you know what types of activities they do, their interests, and what they ...

You need to use flash. The two main advantages of flash will both help with what you are trying to do. Strobes place a lot of light on the subject at the time of exposure. Typically at a much lower cost than the same amount and quality of light from continuous sources. The short duration of light put out by many strobes allow you to freeze any motion of ...

I think the poses in general (at least most) don't have a specific name, but you can learn a lot about poses from studying Fashion magazines and specially the work by a model called Coco Rocha, she's a genius in posing and coming up with as many different poses as possible. She published a book with 1000 poses (none of them have names) called "Study of ...
