The ultimate posing reference for both photographers and models.
If you ever run out of ideas, get stuck in creativity or simply need some guidance when photographing people, you can use Posing App as a "posing cheat sheet". Many pro photographers use such a technique when preparing for and during the photo shoot. During a photo shoot don’t hesitate to discuss with your subjects which pose is or isn’t working in any particular situation. It’s very productive and you will feel more confident in what you are doing.

Merged in the practical mobile app format, all of the included poses in Posing App come with easy to understand descriptions and expressive hand drawn illustrations. In contrast to using real photos as samples, illustrations are only body outlines, so it's very simple for a model to understand and recreate the pose. Illustrations aren't in any way restrictive either, the model can be creative and come up with different variants on her own. Initial pose works simply as guidance for something to start with.

A variety of posing categories are available in Posing App: Children, Couples, Women, Men, Groups and Weddings. Over 300 poses are included offering a wide choice in any modeling scenario. A special Glamour section is available as in-app purchase including additional 86 carefully selected glamour poses for female models. While browsing the poses, use the "Add to favorites" feature for fast access during a photo shoot.

In addition, a collection of tips & tricks about people photography is compiled for easy reference. Topics include: "Basics of People Photography", "Face Expressions", "Head, Hand and Leg Positioning", "Accentuating Different Body Parts", "Composition and Equipment Advice for Photographers".

Use the collection of poses both as guidance and creative source for taking beautiful, creative and outstanding photos!

Good stuff

As someone new to family and group shots, found this ap useful.
Shooting a local nursery with 2 year olds and associated relatives,
showing them some of the poses made it easier for them to get organised in a way they liked, as opposed to me suggesting set ups for the groups.
I did that as well but the images they liked the best were ones they chose or adapted from the doesn't take long to go through a set of poses.

I like this a lot

I like this app a lot. Some reviews of a previous version are saying it's expensive. Compared to similar books it's pretty cheap. Yes, all these drawings can be found on the internet, but not as browsable as the app, and the 'favourite' facility means you can select a set you want to use for a particular shoot and then work through them using your favourites list as a reference. You can sit and browse these with a model, and home in on the ones you want. Even with the in app purchase of the glamour poses it still comes in as a pretty inexpensive resource. I love the fact that these are drawings not example photos. That really helps with removing the expectation that a model needs to look similar to a model in the photo, and a drawing isn't tied to particular light settings. The drawings are generic and boil the pose down to it's essentials as a pose (not about models or lights). The style of the drawings - expressive and minimalist, but attractive and arty - is perfect. Someone really thought about this, and it really paid off.

Absolute rip off

For an app that costs £5 it seems to have been abandoned. There aren’t that many poses and it hasn’t been optimised for iPhone X.
