Filmed live on location at The Academy Week in Ireland, follow along with the delegates in this in-depth series of films that take you from the basics to the creative of photographing people. From basic portraits, through Editorial, to Couples, Boudoir, Sports Physique and Nudes, Academy Master Mark Cleghorn and Kenny Martin give you all the knowledge and skills to take your images to the next level.
Posing a couple is a crucial skill for most working photographer today! Whether it’s families, couple or weddings, the ability to direct and pose people together, once mastered, will allow to create great images that earn you money. In this 2-part film Mark takes us out on location to demonstrate his approach to posing, or animation as he prefers. Creating natural, relaxed images through simple direction and rapport. Watch as he breaks down what he looks for in each position and then see how he directs the models from camera position, through instruction and demonstration, to position them exactly where he wants. This allows him to create a wide variety of image styles in just a short space of time, keeping the couple relaxed and engaged throughout.
