I'm asumming 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 diferent names, with 1000 variation levels on each to pose, and to practice that pose to be just the perfect canonical ...

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 ...

Albeit I'm not in any way a professional photographer I doubt this named list does exist. 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. This allows for you later on to refer to them ...

Could you abandon the plan and just follow them around for a while, photographing them at home, and while they're driving or on public transport, at the pub/office/theatre, and so on, firing shots every time you like the scene and the lighting? Doing this I found three groups of people: those who hate the camera and scowl at it, those who love the camera ...

Your question has two aspects, how to prevent people from over-preparing for the shoot, and how to get them to relax during the shoot, so I will address each individually. Preparation: From what you've said, it sounds like your subjects may be feeling a bit pressured into getting the perfect shot. This will cause them to do what makes them feel the most ...

My 2 cents. 1) Before the photo. Yes, a good portrait is a special moment, you don't want to make it after a crazy party where some have the eyes red or bags on the eyes. They must look for the clothing he or she really likes, not just the suit that is in the closet sicne last year. 1 or 2 options. Define the type of portrait. Casual, rustic, elegant, ...

You don't have to be honest about the process you intend to follow. This is something that is exploited in many psychology experiments. In this case, you could explain to the subjects that to make the perfect pictures of them, you first need pictures that are less than perfect where the clothes they were must be casual clothing they were at home; the makeup ...

To make someone comfortable just start talking to them casually without showing them that you are searching for a photograph with a perfect natural pose , as the person sitting in front of you will start getting comfortable you will notify that some how there body will make a triangle shape either with hands,legs ,etc. NOTE: any person sitting or standing in ...

Setting up flashes for a party, it takes adjusting to get an even illumination across the area where people might stand 5 across. With two people and 1 light, it's less problematic but still can get uneven. Besides differing distance, turning to a different angle to the light can cause differences. So use that on purpose. If you are facing forward at 12 ...

Why do you think you're an odd couple? Simply because you're tall and blond, and he's Asian? If that's your definition of odd, then any photo is going to look odd to you I suppose, since you two are going to look blond and Asian. If you think your height makes you look odd, there are a number of poses (sitting for example) which would make that fact less ...
