Exercise: Varying the pose

In preparation I looked at a number of magazines as well as looking at some portrait paintings by Édouard Manet [1832–1833].

Most of these came from women's magazines and are crude captures taken with my phone. I found that this was a good source of inspiration and gave plenty of additional ideas. I was also pleasantly surprised how many times I came across similar poses, there must be a standard repertoire within fashion photography!

Varying the pose becomes a lot easier when there are a number of examples to get the subject to try.

Here were the fourourite poses I tried to emulate.....
