Posturing

posturing

I’ve always been confused as to why fashion photography often shows models in weird, unnatural poses. Well, this book explains it and shows some pretty weird poses too. It’s really more about creating cool, graphic shapes and turning human figures into sculptures rather than showing clothes in their best position and angle. i think it’s still sort of weird but I understand it better now. Here’s a link to an article about the book and some more cool images.
