Does Photography Posing Secrets Really Work or Is it a Scam? Here is a review of Malcolm Boone's Program:
It is the job of professional portrait photographers to capture the 'perfect moment', when the subject’s features are looking their best. As anyone who has ever taken portraits before knows, this can be quite difficult. The camera captures an image in around 1/125 of a second—and the photographer must click the shutter at just the right moment to get the shot he or she is after.
We have all seen what happens when the shutter is not clicked in the right fraction of a second. Eyes partially closed, awkward half smiles, eyes closed, and the always entertaining one eye open and one eye closed shot are common results.
One of the reasons for all of the photographical mishaps is that the photographers have limited knowledge of how to pose subjects to get the best shots. Not only does the pose have to be balanced, aesthetically pleasing, and flattering to the model’s features, but the photographer also has to get the subject to relax and make a pleasing, natural expression that will register well as a still shot. There are a countless number of small movements that could put the model out of position, or leave an unpleasant expression on his or her face. For this reason, posing skills are something every portrait photographer must master.
