I photograph a lot of people. I shoot executive portraits and environmental portraits and babies and kids and models and all sorts of people doing all sorts of things. And almost all of them are posed in one way or another. Sure, I have some favorite poses that I regularly rely on, but with posing—as it is with so many photographic techniques—it can be all too easy to get stuck in a rut and fall back on the same basic poses time and again. Well there's a great way to help you get out of your posing rut, or to learn new poses if you're not especially experienced. It's an app for your iPhone called, appropriately, Posing App. It does just what you'd think it would: it categorizes illustrated poses into groups of men, women, children, couples, groups and weddings, and it includes a total of 140 different poses that you can incorporate into your photo shoots. Best of all, since it's on your phone you'll always have a hundred new pose ideas right in your pocket.
