63 Posing by the Book

Stuck in a posing rut? Look no further than the latest Nicholas Sparks book. Seriously, you’ll find some really good poses on there! A quick Google image search will do the trick. What do you notice the cover models all have in common?

  • They’re not looking at the camera.
  • They all seem to be in some “moment.”
  • You can feel love in them.
  • The Almost Kiss is in full effect in most.
  • They’re close to each other.
  • They make good use of their hands.

I have a little image folder on my iPhone of screenshots to pull up if I’m ever at a loss for a good pose. Figure 4.9 shows a shot that reminds me of the cover of Message in a Bottle.
