Andy Armstrong introduces his third eBook, “The Art of Posing and Directing Women” – an expansion of the training and ideas found in his first two eBooks. This 114-page book boasts that it’s “everything you need to know about creating the very best images of women,” and through detailed explanations, images, diagrams, and real-world examples, it delivers.

The international award-winning master photographer delivers  the goods in this eBook, providing insight into pose, pose progression, specialized posing (including his coveted head shot method), what to watch out for in poses, and how to fix those issues.  With solid descriptions, working images, and real-world examples, Armstrong gives you the how and the why of posing women.

After some nicely crafted real-world examples of how the poses look in finished images, Armstrong moves on to simple, effective lighting by providing detailed lighting diagrams for several of his favorite “go to” setups. These are coupled with directions, tips, and actual examples of how the lighting setups look in actual images.  Armstrong covers studio soft-portrait lighting, studio fashion lighting, studio ring light look lighting, outdoor + strobe lighting, and natural indirect lighting.

Once you’ve got all the posing tips and the lighting direction, “The Art of Posing and Directing Women” moves right into the real meat of what it takes to shoot with women by focusing on communication and direction. It’s hard to put into words what Armstrong manages to teach in this section, but it will literally change (for the better) your communication practices in the studio and on location.

In over twenty pages of information, Armstrong defines the aspects of communication and how you can use all the tools in your toolbox to communicate more effectively. He shows you how to use subtle techniques to enhance your skills and how to lead more effectively through words, body language, and hand signals. He continues by giving tips and tricks on what to avoid (like verbal tics and fillers, passive leadership,  and being less than human) and how to avoid them. This section is absolutely invaluable to any portrait photographer, and Armstrong gives it the thorough treatment it truly deserves.

If you shoot portraits of women at all, you need this eBook. It will help you become the photographer you want to be. It will increase your skills and increase your sales. It’s that simple.
