We’ve all been there… we’re in the middle of a session and we busted through our usual poses and it suddenly happens. FIELD FREEZE. Our minds go blank and we look like we don’t know what we’re doing. We don’t know what to do with arms or hands or angles or any of it. Our brain broke.
Posing our clients can be the easiest thing to do but sometimes, especially when we want to try new poses, we draw a blank right in front of our clients. It happens to the best of us! If this has happened to you, you know how it feels!
And no photographer wants to be the photographer who uses the same old poses every single time with every single client. It not only makes us feel boring, but it can show in our work too.
So why not try something new?
What if I told you that you could not only watch me pose my senior clients while on real sessions, but hear the way I instruct them too?!? How about watching entire sessions and how I interact with my real senior clients?!
Welcome to the A-List Shooting Tutorials! We have something for everyone: beginner photographers who need posing basics, seasoned photographers who need to update their posing methods, and the in between photographers who just want some fresh ideas! We’ve got you covered!
There’s two different kinds of video tutorials in our A-List Shop:
- Instructional Posing Videos: these kinds of videos are very detailed posing tutorials where I pose and shoot in front of a camera while I explain to you, the photographer, exactly why I’m posing my subject the way I am. I turn and speak directly to the camera and show you my WHY. These are great videos for those of you who want to feel like you’re at a workshop with me, side-by-side. They are also great for those of you who want to learn an entirely new way of posing: like a more editorial style, movement, etc.
- Behind the Scenes Session Videos: these kinds of videos are filmed from live senior sessions over my shoulder. You can see exactly what I’m shooting, where my reflector is, where I am in relation to my senior, and can hear me instructing my seniors as we move through entire sets of poses. These are great videos for those of you who wish you could be a “fly on the wall” at one of my sessions and just watch me work.
*BOTH types of videos show the images I capture as I press the shutter button. You’ll never be left to wonder what the shot looked like – it will always pop up on the screen.
Let’s talk about which videos fall under the appropriate categories:
INSTRUCTIONAL POSING VIDEOS:
Editorial Fusion: when you want your images to have a more magazine flair to them
Senior Sessions: for those of you who want to see my regular senior session poses
Signature Lighting: a detailed instructional tutorial how I use studio lighting
Movement: when you want to capture images with more action in them
Reflect: when you’re ready to use a reflector in your sessions for perfect light & exposure
