    PPA Members:


    PPA Instructor Doug Box teaches you how to pose people so that they look their best—which pretty much guarantees clients will return again and again.

    Doug also offers easy ways to remember common posing rules, so that you can get it right—every time.

    Discover answers to questions including:

    • Should you pose men and women differently?
    • Can you pose people together to complement each one individually?
    • Does a pose start with the feet or the smile?
    • What is 'corrective posing'?

    In this class, you’ll learn posing for all situations and some common mistakes to avoid, too. Plus, get lighting tips and techniques that can enhance drama or create a softer look.
