Finally, we have thus far limited ourselves to making the man look taller in the imagery. Since I always enjoy exploding what people may take as gospel, we will make the female of the couple the taller of the two. By using her arms as a frame around her partner's neck, we can generate a great engagement-type shot. I have also used this pose with child siblings and mother/daughter or father/son type portraits.
Use of the hands in this shot leads me nicely into the subject for the next Posing Pouch, where we will take aclose look at the placement of hands as well as kissing (ooh matron!)
Meanwhile, happy posing.
