In this beautiful, yet extremely practical source book, fashion photographer Eliot Siegel embarks on an ambitious project to pull together 1,000 poses for photographing models. Designed to inspire photographers and models alike, the book's poses are organized by type including standing, sitting, reclining, crouching, kneeling, and dynamic poses, as well as head and shoulder shots and expressions. For selected images, Siegel includes a lighting diagram as well as a detailed explanation of how the image was made, but in every case he explains why a pose works, or why it doesn't. This image-packed reference also features iconic photography from prominent fashion photographers and includes a how-to chapter at the end of the book that provides a crash course on lighting, styling, props, and backgroundseverything you need to know to make a woman look great, regardless of which of the 1,000 poses you wind up using.
