About This Class

Hi and welcome back.

      My name is Kasia  I am free Lance  photographer  with 8 years  of experience. I have graduated  on NYIP,  course  in professional photography.

      In my lessons  I would  like to teach you  useful  techniques  and how to apply them. This lesson is a second part to my previous  lesson ''how to make anyone look their best in the picture''.  I was talking about head positioning setting up the light and camera angle is best too shoot from, I've also explained importance of colours surrounding your subject.

     In this lesson  I will talk about body language and face expressions. How to direct posing person to get effects you want. We all subconsciously  send signals to others, I will teach you   how to find the best poses for different types of people.

     In this lesson we will focus on female posing basics.  I will point out the difference  between  flattering poses and those distracting one.  I will also tech you how to pose your subject to make picture more dynamic.

      So don't hesitate and click enrol button  and I'll see you there.
