Posing and lighting are often two challenging areas for photographers, especially as more than one subject is added and this book offers some interesting ways to pose couples. Are some images better and more stimulating than others? Of course! But, some photographers are also better than others too. This book, and the poses offered can help a photographer take ordinary shots and turn them into extraordinary shots if they can apply a little of the own ingenuity. I will be purchasing the remaining 500 poses I'm missing from this author.
This book inspired me to buy it with the photos they showed in the ad as examples. The other books in this series did not inspire me, because they showed common pictures anyone could take, and I didn't buy any of them.
I've looked over this book now that I have it, and I think I will be going back to it again for ideas on couples photographing. If you photograph couples, you could use this book.
The only complaint I have is that many poses are repeated and the shot EXIF data isn't included. It would terribly easy to include basic information such as the MM, and F stop used to aid in garnering the same effects and it would improve the book dramatically.
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.
