On Sunday we had a workshop about portrait shooting and posing and I emphasized the point, that women and men are, as everyone knows, different. And in posing as well. As women have a lot of curves it should be obvious to point this out and to show it in an image as well.
There is quite a good stance where the model can put her weight just on one foot and push out her hip quite to a considerable extent. The spine will not be in a 90 degree angle to her stand and the whole pose looks more natural even if the original stance seems a little bit awkward and silly.
sometimes all explaining is going for nuts and so showing is the thing to do and so I did. One of my fellow photographers (Michela Dupasquier) got a good catch of my posing efforts and put it together. So you can see me make the models love and even some different curves which I can show off.
