Now that is a biginners question and placed appropiatly.  .

I think the idea is to ask questions here about things you have not done before in the hope that some more seasoned members can give input as well as beginners that have resently been through what you are doing and can share what they learnd going though the process...

I'm sorry if you think I was out of line, but I would have asked that question on the pro forum, where someone might actually have taken photos of the kind mentioned..

Here is a link to a PDF file that has tons of different poses. Not the most original, but a good start if you have no idea how to pose someone..

This type of picture, for sending out for casting, publishing in "The Stage" etc.... is called a "headshot"..

Please see here.....

And there are more helpful hints in some of the other videos you'll find there..

Note: There is currently a Hollywood fad for tungsten lighting, or natural daylighting, that blasts into the models' faces. The lighting itself is soft, but because it is continuous, and necessarily bright, it 'pinpricks' the pupils of the eyes in a way which is not attractive to European tastes. Go ahead and use the lighting style if it appeals, but only if you are shooting flash, eh?.

You'll be able to see what I mean here......

Dont take it personal man. you are correct that the question could also have a rightful place in the pro forum, but I dont know... I am no pro pro so I would not post there. I would think the answers you get there would be different than here. to be honest I did think that you response was a bit inappropriate, but it is not my place to judge, so no harm no foul. your second response was more appropriate by giving a reason for you original statment (this should go in the pro forum).

You just made a rather sharp statment and it could have been ignored, but I chose to invoke further respose in a simular manner as given, and perhaps a little sarcasm, but with good intensions...

No offense taken. I am reluctant to query the pros too, but I read the pro forum and I know there are pros who specialize in all kinds of portraits of the kind mentioned. If I were trying to break into a field for which a portrait might make or break my career, I would want to be absolutely certain I did it right. Advanced amateurs like me respond to queries in the beginners' forum, but we sure as hell aren't pros and our advice in specialized circumstances like this might not be the best..

Hah, they would be too busy complaining about 'amateurs' such as the OP for undercutting their business..

The pro forum is for [wedding] pro only it seems...
