Posing tips for shooting men?

Eduard K , Oct 21, 2004; 03:10 a.m.

Are there any good resources (books/pose cards/websites, etc) for posing men? I'm interested in something containing just rough line sketches of poses.

Take a look at: http://www.bikerfox.com/foxphotos2/ It's not rough line sketches, but it's quite interesting to look at. :)

Steady your arm against a wall or something. Don't rest your eye against the scope. Exhale half-way then squeeze the trigger.

Oh.... You meant with a camera.

I stumbled on this site recently. It includes posing tips, although very classic/formal.

Try the Joe Zeltsman method. It's all formal posing but it applies.

If you like to read a bit more get into something about "bodytalk", maybe by Desmond Morris. - That's not meant for posing a customer to look good, but it might help watching people you like and collecting their different expressions. But go with Zeltsman too.
