    Father in law

    He wanted a professional photo. I just noticed there is a strain of hair on his chest. Need to photo shop it out lol. I thought it was on my screen.

    I'd really consider a more classical, proven way to pose a man of his age and physical characteristics. Specifically, sitting him down and having him lean forward, so his head and neck and chest are over and at least a little bit literally "in front of the belt buckle", and then lifting his chin up, both posing strategies which would totally change his weight distribution and his body's actual posture.

    He looks kind of 'robust' the way he is shown...he could use some more "dynamism" gained by changing the way he is physically presented to the camera.
