I shoot a fair amount of portraits for individuals; but sometimes on the spot, the pose I want just doesn’t come to me right away. I know I am not the only one who has had this problem. But alas, there is a solution. This solution was brought to my attention by, you guessed it, Brandon Irby.
It is actually pretty simple. Just scavenger your old images and images from the net that have good poses that you like, then upload them to your iPhone. This way, you always have a catalogue of 10-15 poses in your pocket. You can review the poses while your subject is changing outfits, moving to a new location, or when you want to pretend that you got a text message during the shoot. Okay I was kidding about the last one, that would be really unprofessional.
Go grab some images, upload them to your iPhone, and shoot some pictures. Oh yeah then come back and share them with us all. Feel free to post links in the comment section back to your blog with images you shot using this technique.
