Portraits: Striking the pose, by Gina Milicia
Price: $19.99 USD (eBook PDF download)
Posing is something that can make or break a portrait. Do it badly and your subject looks awkward and the resulting image is spoiled (and quickly deleted). Do it well and your subject will be at ease and their true character will shine through. In ‘Portraits: Striking a pose’, photographer Gina Milicia shares the tips and tricks she’s used on royalty, rockstars and supermodels. We’re not talking about wildly unnatural poses, but natural poses you can use with anyone, at any time. If you’d like to take your portrait photography to the next level, whether in a professional environment or simply taking better photos of your friends and family, I can recommend this ebook!
