Poses I is a reference book for photographers, models, editors, art directors, and stylists to aid in the previsualization of fashion shoots. It contains more than 200 images* illustrating a variety of standing, laying, sitting, crawling, and kneeling poses, with subtle differences in mood and gesture. By showing several variations of shot types, the book attempts to show the importance of framing and articulation of the body. The end goal is to provide the photographer and creative team with a selection of different shots that can serve as a starting point in preproduction discussions.
*A mini, 120-page version of the book is also available for slightly less.
