Présentation de l'éditeur

Photographer, author, and educator Roberto Valenzuela has a proven track record for teaching and explaining difficult concepts to photographers of all skill levels. His remarkable ability to break down complicated ideas into understandable, approachable elements that photographers can truly grasp–and then use their newfound knowledge to improve their photography–made his first book, Picture Perfect Practice, a breakout success.

In Picture Perfect Posing, Roberto takes on the art of posing. For many photographers, after learning to compose an image and even light it properly, a portrait can still easily be a failure if the pose is not natural, elegant, and serving the needs of both the subject and the photographer. Instead of just showing page after page of poses–like most posing books on the market–Roberto actually breaks down the concept of posing by examining the anatomy, starting with the core foundation: the spinal chord and neck. Building from there, Roberto discusses every component of what makes poses work, as well as fail. How should the model hold her hands? Bend her elbows? Position her fingers? Should the model look toward or away from the camera, and why? It all depends on what the photographer wants for the shot, and Roberto discusses the entire process, from the intent of the photographer through the execution of the pose. For those who have been discouraged by an inability to pose their subjects, or who have simply not known where to start in order to "figure it out," Picture Perfect Posing is the essential resource they need to learn how posing truly works, and how they can learn to direct the exact pose they need for the shot they want.  

Biographie de l'auteur

Roberto Valenzuela is a photographer based in Beverly Hills, CA. He developed his unique teaching style by following the same practice regimen he developed as a professional concert classical guitarist and educator. Roberto believes that it is not talent but deliberate practice that is at the core of skill and achievement. He has traveled to every corner of the world, motivating photographers to practice and break down the various elements of photography in order to master them through goal setting, self-training, and constant dedication.

Roberto serves as a judge for photographic print competitions in Europe, Mexico, South America, and the most prestigious international photography competitions held in the United States through Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) in Las Vegas, NV.

Roberto teaches private workshops, seminars, and platform classes at the largest photography conventions in the world. He has been an international first-place winner three times and has been nominated by his peers as one of the ten most influential photographers and educators in the world. His first book, Picture Perfect Practice, became a bestselling photography training book, and it is sold worldwide.

Aside from the world of photography, Roberto is a high-performance remote-control helicopter pilot, a (not so good anymore) classical guitarist, and a table tennis fanatic. He is also a major foodie and is still searching for the most amazing red wine and the most pungent cheeses. His search for the perfect steak is over; he found it in the Japanese Wagyu.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Finally, now I understand posing 16 mars 2014
Par DjjZ - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
As an aspiring amateur portrait photographer, I have spent hours trying to figure out how to pose people, without having to spend 10 years of daily practice to master it. Most books I have seen will give you the "rules" then immediately tell you how to break them. They just leave me confused. I am left trying to memorize a few poses or doing lots of planning beforehand.

This book explains WHY you do what you do in a way you can understand, and more importantly, remember. Now I finally feel like I might be able to be halfway competent at posing even without tons of experience. In addition, there are comparison photos shown, with method a and method b, you decide what looks best. And there is "homework" in each chapter with photographs for you to practice your new knowledge on, trying to figure out if and how they could have been done in a more attractive, pleasing way.

It's far better to have photos where you can recognize flaws rather than a book full of perfect poses that if I knew how to do, I would not need the book.

I probably won't been needing the plethora of other books I have on posing--just this one.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This is THE BOOK you want to get to finally UNDERSTAND the principles behind posing 15 avril 2014
Par Joshua Young - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Have you ever came across a portrait and something about it grabs your attention? Have you ever came across what you thought was a great picture, but somehow something was just off... but you can't put your finger on it? Once you've read this book, then you WILL KNOW why you like / dislike something. You will finally understand poses. Now Robert himself will tell you that practice is where you need to perfect it and make it second nature, but this is a great start to that.

I've owned Picture Perfect Practice, and it's one of the few photography book that I've gone back and reread multiple times. So when Roberto Valenzuela came out with this book, I knew that I just HAD to get it. Sure enough, my expectations was not just met, but exceeded. Roberto is an excellent teacher, and he gets you not to memorize poses, but to UNDERSTAND the whys behind the PRINCIPLES. He gets you into the whys and hows, not just the whats (where most books often leave you).
If you decide to break those principles, at least you will be doing it consciously, knowing what effect it has on the images you are creating.

If you have any inclination of photographing people, you MUST MUST MUST buy this book. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Brilliant! The one book you need to read about posing 13 mars 2014
Par Ali Kawssan - Publié sur Amazon.com
If I had to choose one and only one book about posing, Picture Perfect Posing would definitely be my choice! Roberto’s approach is simply brilliant and never have I seen a system that clear and well explained about such a complex element of photography.

This book will teach you the ‘’language’’ of posing and how to use it in each and every situation depending on what you want to achieve. No more remembering poses, no more guessing and no more wondering what to do with each body part.

This will definitely help you step up your game and gain more confidence in front of your clients, whether it is a wedding or a commercial shoot.

I believe that no matter at what level of expertise you are, you can still benefit from this book.

Many thanks to Roberto Valenzula for being so transparent with his techniques and for sharing all this great knowledge.

This is a MUST have book to all portrait and wedding photographers. If you apply what you learn in this book to your photography your images will become better and you will have happy and excited clients.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A truly useful photography book! 15 juin 2015
Par Brent A. Thale - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
"Picture Perfect Posing" is the most practically useful photography book I have ever read. So many books of this type are so non-specific, speaking in generalities so that very little actionable information is given to the reader. This book is very, very specific, pointing out posing problems and presenting the reader with a defined system for fixing them.

The author uses his own photos as both good and bad examples of posing, which is very encouraging since it shows the reader that it is possible to get significantly better at posing subjects through practice. While reading about the bad examples, I could directly relate to the author and how he dealt with posing when he started out, which was trying to memorize thousands of poses, then forgetting all of them during a shoot and just shouting out random posing commands, hoping for something that works. I have been there.

If you come to photography from an engineering background or you just have a logical mind, Picture Perfect Posing will be a very helpful tool because it is a specific system that addresses common posing problems you will likely encounter, with specific solutions for fixing them. This is so helpful because it can be very difficult to look at a pose and figure out exactly why it doesn't work without this sort of information. For example, the author covers finger positioning, where and how hands should be placed, how noses should be pointed... all very helpful to give photographers a base to work from instead of just trying to create awesomeness from nothing.

The author even touches on facial expression, although that isn't the primary focus of the book. I found this interesting because the method suggested to get good performances is similar to a famous actor direction technique: Give the person a task to concentrate on, like counting fenceposts or trying to spot exactly when the camera's shutter closes behind the lens, etc. This can make it easier for the subject to produce an engaged expression that takes the photo to the next level of professionalism, I would love to see a whole book about direction for still photography.

One nitpick for future editions: On page 168 the text refers to a blue line indicating the "overlap point" of two bodies in a couple's pose. It looks like the publisher changed the blue line to a red circle without updating the text, since I do not see a blue line in the example photos.

I highly recommend "Picture Perfect Posing" to photographers who need a strong base to build poses from, especially for wedding and engagement photography.
