    I need help with new posing ideas. Do you have any recommended reading or articles that may help?

    There are books available on posing, but when I have a fashion or similar shoot, I normally start as "DeepSpring" suggests and get some tear sheets from magazines, then work from there.

    Good advice above. The other thing I would suggest is try it and see, and just becasue you made someone move in to a certain position doesn't mean you HAVE to take a picture. Many a time in a studio I've gone through the run of "..now arm a little lower...stretch that leg out...chin up... eyes to me....hold it....nope, that looks crap, relax and we'll start again"

    Don't ever feel like a copycat, remember the expression "there is nothing new under the sun" One of the best way to learn something is to do what someone else has done that works. I have been shooting for nearly 50 years, and even now I search through magazines for ideas. Those ideas will then stay in your mind for the future and will stand you in good stead. :lol:
