Classic Female Pose

Another pose using the 1-2-3 posing technique. This pose is called the 'one legged' pose because even if she were in leotards only the front leg would show. All of her weight has been shifted to the rear hip/foot (which cants the hips) and the front foot is pointed toward the photographer with her front knee bent in toward the column. Body is turned at a 45 degree angle, face turned the opposite way of her body and back past the camera then her eyes are brought back to camera position.

This is another of my homemade backgrounds. I call it Savannah.

You have posted quite a few portrait shots...I think all are very nice.

Have you created a tutorial on poses, lighting, creation of backgrounds and such? Maybe different tutorials would work, but I think it would be beneficial to the community as a whole. I like the comments you make when you post the shots so maybe just a compilation of all those posts to make the tutorial.

Thoughts?

Several members of another website I frequent has asked me to make a CD of all of "my" poses and put a tutorial with them. I may do that if I can sell enough of them to make it worth my time. What I'm afraid of is that lots of people will SAY they want one but when it gets to putting up the $$$ they will back out. I'm going to check what it will cost to make one, but it will have to be done this winter when I'm not so busy. I'm not sure as to how to market it either.

It's certainly possible to make money on something like this, but for me, and the information out there on the 'Net, I don't know if I'd buy a CD. Perhaps, however, posting simple summary information with an option to buy a more expanded version on CD would be a good way to go.

Benji you must have a warehouse to store all these backgrounds in . Another great background and beautifull portraite. How many lights did you use in this shot? One main light and a background light?

Great shot, and I love your skill with the backgrounds. Of course I have been making notes of your posing tips as well. =)

Dave,

You're pretty close, I used three. I always use a fill light behind the camera to make sure the shadows get some illumination, a main light (obviously) and a hair light/background light above and behind the subject. I used this same background yesterday for a portrait of a local beauty pageant winner but I added three more lights to this set.

Thanks for the kind remarks.

Benji
