    I was wondering if anyone knows of a good site with tips and suggestions for posing your subjects. I am definitely a beginner and I'm learning more and more technical stuff everyday, but I'd like to learn how to pose properly too, at least some basics so that I can eventually get creative. I've been browsing the portrait section here and getting ideas, but I'd also enjoy something that I could read. I'm specifically interested in shooting children and couples, but I'd be happy to learn anything at all about posing and from there I could apply those concepts in my own portraits.

    Thanks in advance!

    I would just pickup some magazines on subjects that would be similar to what you'll be photographing.

    Do you have a library near you? You might be able to find some books about posing & shooting people.

    HERE is a good site for some 'classic' portrait techniques.
