Michelle Perkins is a writer, a photographer, and a digital imaging specialist. She is a technical editor for Rangefinder, a regular contributor to After Capture, and has written for PC Photo. She is the author of numerous photography books, including Professional Portrait Lighting and Professional Portrait Posing, and is the coauthor of The Illustrated Dictionary of Photography. She lives in Buffalo, New York.

Next to lighting, posing is the most challenging aspect of photography?with so many body parts to capture, the possibilities are endless, and it's all too easy to make a wrong turn. This illustrated reference provides both amateur shutterbugs and seasoned pros with the perfect place to turn when in need of quick posing strategies and fresh ideas. Containing 500 contemporary images by leading photographers, this indispensable manual explains posing fundamentals as well as how to create a flattering, feature-specific photograph?one that focuses on the head, shoulders, arms, torso, or feet?in different levels of close-ups, from head-shots to full-lengths.

  • A good book to spur creativity.

    This book works well with people who are interested in having photos done. It is full of many photos that you can use to spark some creativity. Its a well rounded mix of different skin types and colors. When I do shoots, i like to take this book with me before hand to show different angles and lighting styles. It is much simpler to show someone a pose than try and explain it. It also can span gaps across language barriers, I work with people that dont always speak or understand english. It helps reduce stress and helps things flow.
