Additional Inspiration

The following pages are filled with photographs for you to draw inspiration from. Not every pose will work with every client, but you can use the tips earlier in this chapter to accentuate your client’s best features.

Chapter 6. Sitting Poses

Whether you’re photographing a subject on a posing stool, in a car, or on a motorcycle, seated poses benefit from many of the techniques I’ve already covered throughout this book. You want your subject to feel confident and comfortable, but still maintain negative space and structure to better define his physique.

Keep in mind that foreshortening does exist when photographing men who are seated, so any limbs pointed toward the camera will look larger than they really are. I try to keep my subject’s limbs parallel to the background to elongate his body, as in FIGURE 6.1. The more the body is rotated toward the camera, the shorter the limbs will look because of lens compression.
