Customer Reviews

Lots of great ideas in this book to get you creative juices flowing.
Brent H. Zendner
The emphasis is primarily on romantic couples, so if you are an aspiring wedding or engagement photographer, this book could be especially helpful.

I was going to order the Portrait 500 poses, and I'm so glad I waited and only wasted my money on one book!

Format: Paperback
Like the previous reviewer said, this is a great resource to leaf through before shooting a couple. The images are from a wide variety of professional photographers, so the style, locations, subjects all vary greatly, so no matter where you are or how and who you shoot, you can use this book as a starting point. The emphasis is primarily on romantic couples, so if you are an aspiring wedding or engagement photographer, this book could be especially helpful. It could also be a good resource for more seasoned photographers who want to expand their posing options, and try new things. The photos are also organized into types of poses, i.e., head and shoulders, waist up, 3/4 length seated, 3/4 length standing, and so on. If you need help with posing ideas, this is a resource you should have in your library.

This is the 4th in book in the 500 pose series and it is just what the Photography Dr. ordered.
This book is not one to look for lighting diagrams and tech info. What you do with this source book is
study the poses just before you go to the shoot to get a clear idea of what you want or need to produce.
The other benefit is its shows you a varitey of settings and people of various shapes and sizes. This is one of the few books I will not loan out Get Your Own Copy

Guess I was expecting more from this book than just 500 images of couples posing. Some of the photos had an outdated feel and some were just plain hokey looking. I think you would get better results doing a google image search for engagement photos.

This is a great visual resource.
There are lots of different poses for the couples - ranging from head and shoulders only, through to full body. Both seated, standing and reclining.... and a section on environmental posing too, where the background and street scenes are included.

The overall concept for this book is good, it has alot of great ideas. But, the title is very decieving, it should be more like 200 different poses. Alot of the poses are repeated or not what I would call different. The same pose twice with the person smiling in one and not smiling in the other is not "differet." Or, the same picture processed differently is not a different pose. The book is not bad but the title is misleading.

Another typical photo book with samples of the poses, but little or no creative input on working with people.

Worth having for a new photographer but for anybody with couple of years of professional photography under the belt this is a waste of time. I bought it as a gift for some of my new photographers so they can learn some basic stuff, but I expect of them to go through it fast and move on.

If you're new to photography and if you need some help starting, this might be good visual aid, but don't expect wonders.

This book really isn't all about posing. It was more of an idea book. Things to maybe be aware of as they happen. It was probably half candids and half posed.
