2013 Convention
The Societies 2013 Convention - Posing Masterclass by Andy Cubin and Terry Hewlett

The Posing from Head-to-Foot Masterclass will run on Friday 11th January 2013 from 18.00 to 19.30.

Photography trainers, Terry Hewlett ARPS and Andy Cubin ASIFGP, will take you through the fundamentals of directing a live model and show you a simple systematic approach to setting up poses.

The building block system of creating good poses comes from separating the 3 main areas of the body: the head, the torso and the legs. Add a simple combination of hand placements and you create powerful, dynamic poses that will make your people-photography jump.

Both photographers and models easily dry-up, so this Masterclass will show you how to learn and remember how to set up hundreds of great poses to get better pictures time after time.
