Posing is something that can make or break a portrait.
Do it badly and your subject looks awkward and the resulting image is spoiled (and quickly deleted).
Do it well and your subject will be at ease and their true character will shine through.
As a portrait photographer (at any skill level) it’s your job to make sure the people in your viewfinder are positioned perfectly and comfortable in front of the camera.
Experienced portrait photographers all have a set of ‘go to’ poses for any situation and have their own ‘way’ of ensuring the people in their portraits are as relaxed and natural possible. Over years and years they’ve experimented, learned what works, what doesn’t. The problem is that this wisdom often sits in the back of their mind, hidden from view…
Today you’re about to get your hands on the posing secrets of super talented portrait photographer Gina Milicia. With more than 25 years experience taking stunning pictures of people, she’s going to share with you the portrait posing tips and tricks she’s used on royalty, rockstars and supermodels.
Say Goodbye to Dull and Lifeless Pictures of People. Learn how to take Portraits with SOUL…
Whether it’s taking pictures of our friends, kids, partners or even ourselves – for a lot of photographers, people are what we’re looking at through the viewfinder (or on the LCD) when we line up a shot.
Yet so many of us struggle to take portraits with the ‘WOW Factor’.
We wanted to help you achieve your true potential as a portrait photographer, so we’ve released a comprehensive 84 page downloadable eBook (this is not a hard cover book – it is a PDF eBook) to teach you the secrets of stunning portraiture.

We’re so confident that it will, we’re backing it with a money-back guarantee. No questions asked.
