The goal…whether you shun typical posing or embrace it…is to have your portraits look as natural as possible and allow your viewers to see your subject without much thought given to the “pose”.
Posing encompasses much more than just the positioning of your subjects body…it also involves the attitude that you want them to project and the facial expression that you want to capture. One of the main things that I strive for in posing my seniors is to convey movement and fluidity in the image.
If you like a particular pose, try to change it up a bit by having your subject look a different direction…off to the side, down, up…all can give very different looks to the same pose. Shooting at a slight downward angle, particularly for close-ups, helps to slim your subjects face. Be mindful of limbs…a slight bend at the elbows and knees in every pose will always make the image look more natural.
Avoid shooting heavier people straight on…in fact, it’s typically not flattering even for thin people. For guys you want to help position them in order to make them look strong and confident in their images.
Something to watch for with guys is the position of their hands when their arms are relaxed…you want to be mindful of hand positioning that appears feminine.
One of the most helpful things you can do to improve your posing ideas is to create a posing journal for yourself. Another thing that can be helpful as you start to build your own portfolio of shots that you love is to take advantage of your phone if you have image library capabilities on it. Inspiration is plentiful online…but, do be careful that you are being inspired to create and not inspired to copy.
Many of you have become subscribers to my blog since this series began…so I just wanted to say thank you and welcome! AND…a HUGE thank you to the spectacular Jodi Friedman for inviting me to do this series…it’s been a lot of fun and I’m looking forward to the rest of the series which will cover more of the business side of working with seniors.
Thank you so much…this is great stuff that I can use for more than just senior poses!
I am a senior this year and i really want my senior pictures and your pictures really stood out to me many things i have wanted pics by that you have in these photos!

Photographs are usually taken with a digital camera, negative film, scanner, and input directly into a computer. Prisma – The Best Photo Editing App which Coverts the image into an Art work is currently available for iOS only.
There are rumors that Prisma will be available soon for Android and most probably by the end of this month. It’s extremely easy to make an image transparent with the help of Preview, the built-in image editing app that comes along with all Macs with OS X.
You can turn any image transparent with Preview, though you’ll find the resulting image must be saved as an image format that supports transparency. To get the finer details transparent it can help to zoom in and out of the image using Command+Plus and Command+Minus keys. If the original file was a PNG or GIF and you are satisfied you can just save as usual, but in a lot of cases you may not want to overwrite the original file. Because you’ll need to perform manual adjustments with the alpha tool, this would not work on a group of files, though you could batch convert them ahead of time to PNG or GIF, then open each individually to make them transparent. The video below walks through the process of turning an image into a transparent version of itself, including cleaning up areas that didn’t get immediately grabbed by the alpha tool by using zoom. I really love using Preview for all kinds of things (Some rudimentary image editing, resizing, merging multiple pictures into one image, combining PDFs, deleting pages from PDFs etc). Every time I export to png, tiff or jpeg, I still get a black background, rather than transparent. I can’t see the edit icon with the pen on a rectangle in osx el capitan, even under annotate. Do you know that if you take images from Google image search you are taking images that belong to other people, including photographers and stock image companies and you could be sued?
Quickly edit the photos you post on Facebook or Twitter so that they have your logo and a text caption that gets your post noticed in the newsfeed? Quickly crop images for your Facebook cover photo or website so that they exactly fit the space? This course will show you how to do all of this and you will be amazed at the effect it will have on your social media posts and your website images.
This weeks featured Mac setup is the awesome home recording studio of Steve Steele, a professional film composer, musician, and band leader, with some very beefy Apple gear and loads of great music equipment.
All Mac users should spend some time getting familiar with and utilizing Gestures, multiple desktop spaces, memorizing keystrokes, and Terminal and Activity Monitor (keep Terminal and Activity Monitor open at all times in a separate desktop space then use control-right arrow key or left arrow key, or use a quick swipe gesture on the Magic Track Pad or Magic Mouse to easily view that desktop). For users who have extremely large files, or a bunch of files that come close to filling up RAM (this happens to me with my orchestral template despite having 64GBs of RAM), don’t hesitate to use the Terminal command “sudo purge”, to clear out memory cache and to keep the OS from moving compressed data to the disk. And last but not least, check OS X Daily for great Terminal Tips and other workflow advice! I have a question because I am totally newbie so excuse me if this is rather simple… but how do you interface guitars, bass, and keyboards with the Mac? If anyone has an idea how to import a guitar to play into something like GarageBand or Logic, and also how to connect an older MIDI keyboard to a Mac, I would love to be able to do that, but no idea how! Setup is in front of a window, and the reflective surfaces around the setup would create a horribly inaccurate acoustic environment. There is absolutely no acoustic treatment visible and areas clearly need treatment for accurate monitoring. The (audio) monitors are far too low they should be centered at ear height not aimed at the listeners chest.


I am wondering if I can use my old MBP (2011, 17″, i7, 2,3) to be a slave with my new MBP as I do all my work on a laptop and I don?t think I?ll be getting a lot for the older machine.
I am though, total new to this master-slave setups so I would appreciate good advices or links to read about it. Whether or not you really need a slave depends on how many resources you’re using up on your main MBP.
So, from what you said, you would have Logic X running on your newer MBP and add a bunch of MIDI tracks that are sent to your slave MBP where VEP will host all or most of your sample libraries from a couple of SSDs plus the max amount of RAM it will hold and you’ll get a lot of additional power even with an older MBP.
I’ve since upgraded my studio to include an iPad Pro (which integrates great in my rig), another 12-core MacPro and much more software. Baihu in Dzungarian Gate  as a reward for completing the quest The Western Metal of Autumn. Some photographers are naturally gifted at pulling this off and others have to study and learn techniques that will aid them in this, but posing and giving direction to our clients is a huge part of our job as professionals, whether we like it or not. This doesn’t have to be as technical as it sounds…but, it’s important to think ahead of time about what you want a particular image to feel like. That doesn’t mean that they need to look like they are in motion, but rather just convey that they are a living, breathing, moving person…not a static creature!
Most people tend to slouch when they are comfortable…and while you want your subjects to look comfortable you don’t want them to look slouched.
It helps to reduce or hide any double chins and is a very flattering angle for most everyone.
Also…in standing positions, direct your subjects to balance their weight more on one side that the other since that is the way that we naturally stand. Folding arms across chest, squatting in some variation of the catcher’s position, leaning forward with elbows on thighs in a sitting position, and hands in one or both pockets or belt loops are all standard ways of positioning a male senior in order to give that appearance.
As long as you are steering away from static posing you can really do well with images that show a genuine part of who they are. It will take time to build up a library of posing that appeals to you, but it can be an invaluable tool to you as you prepare for your sessions.
You can upload some of your favorite shots to your phone and if you find yourself in a creative rut during your session just flip through your portfolio…you’re juices will be flowing again in no time! It’s so hard, particularly when you are starting out in this business, not to copy the work of photographers that you are inspired by. I like to have a lot of options so that I can choose my absolute favorite image in a series rather than have to settle for one where I’m not happy with the expression or attitude. I have just opened up registration to the fall FOCUS 2009 photography workshop in August of this year.
At this time, digital editing is much easier by using an image editing software to apply any effects, warp an image, retouching colors, etc. These fantasy landscape manipulations are perfect for all your graphic design needs such as in postcard printing. There are already many Apps which includes the name Prisma available for Download in Play Store but they are just kind of fake apps. Prisma has received an amazing response from the iOS users even in the afternoon the app just hanged up because of too much load on servers. It has total 34 filters available right now, so you can select the design from 34 amazing filters and can directly share the edited image to social media from prisma app and also you can save the image into your gallery.
Do note this works best on images with uniform colors in the area you want to become transparent. Subscribe to the OSXDaily newsletter to get more of our great Apple tips, tricks, and important news delivered to your inbox!
The Nehalem 2 x 2,26GHz CPUs have been swapped for dual hex core Westmere X5690s for a total of 12-cores running at 3,46GHz. Although OS X does a fine job of managing memory on it’s own, users who push above 80% of physical memory constantly with just one or two apps should get in the habit of managing memory themselves. Go here to get started, all you need to do is answer a few questions about hardware and how you use it, and send it in with several high quality pictures. Some MIDI keyboards need more power than others so you might consider a powered USB hub for all of you MIDI devices. If you look at the photo at the top of this article, directly above the music stand in the rack is my MOTU 896HD interface. The side walls are not parallel, again due to movable baffles, and they are covered with a custom material.
I tracked it in this room (except for the drums), and it was mixed here and at another studio. On any Mac released before 2013, they should not run beyond OS X 10.9 Mavericks for optimal performance. So, the extra features that were added along the way from Snow Leopard to Yosemite don’t cause me a problem, at all.
I also like a lot of the new features in Yosemite’s Finder and Safari compared to Mavericks (although I think Yosemite is a huge step back in the GUI department). Every signal, including audio, MIDI and a sync will travel over the ethernet cable so all you have to do is hit play in Logic and everything just works. For most photographers, posing seems to be one of those love it or hate it aspects of what we do. Sometimes you can capture drastically different moods in the same pose just by a change of facial expression. We’ve all seen the chain store poses that are so stiff that the subjects almost don’t look like real people.
Position arms on hips, up against a wall or fence, overhead, in pockets…front or back…anything that shows movement. Have one or both legs bent at the knees, at differing heights to show more fluidity in the pose.


Just make sure that you don’t get stuck in the rut of always shooting from that angle when shooting close-ups. Some of the best images for your posing journal can be found in trendy catalogs and magazines. We all have those whose work we admire and when we see an image that resonates in us…we naturally desire to create the same thing that we see. So…on average, I shoot around 200 frames at a typical senior session…sometimes more if we are shooting at more than one location.

The more complicated the image and color variation, the more work you will need to do with the alpha tool. It involves using an advanced filter that identifies images that are labeled for reuse and in this video we will show you how to use this filter. But I also very much need Vienna Ensemble Pro, MIR, Kontakt, DSP-Quatro, iZotope RX Advanced, Sibelius, Screenflow, FCPX, Motion and an obscene amount of virtual instruments, sample libraries and plugins. If you’re not ready to share your own setup yet, enjoy browsing through previous featured workstations instead.
If you have a keyboard with the traditional 5 pin MIDI port, then you will need a MIDI interface.
Two MBP’s could be connected with an ethernet cable which the audio travels over and then back through the host MBP to your one interface. Huge orchestras with synths and bands all playing at the same time with reverbs and many other effects in real time are no longer a problem for my rig.
Whether you are a very traditional-posed-portrait type of photographer or all the way on the other end of the spectrum as a lifestyle photographer…you will always have to at least give direction to your clients as to how to situate themselves so that they will look as natural as possible. You want your viewers to engage with the subject of your images…and the first step to achieving that goal is for YOU to be engaging with your subject. Just cut out images that appeal to you and jot down what it is that you love about the images and refer to it often. It’s widely accepted that it’s hard to be unique in this business…especially now with the internet being a virtual showroom for every photographer’s work…but your unique style will develop as you convey your connection with your subjects and through your post processing methods. I’ve subjected my poor clients to some pretty gross stuff all in the name of getting great shots! If a user combines the power of the Terminal, the efficiency of using Gestures, keystrokes and Desktop Spaces, and keeps an eye on memory via the Activity Monitor their workflow would increase exponentially!
M-box is another popular option and there are others and they don’t cost a huge amount certainly under $200. I was surprised when they told me that for around $300 total I could have bought two of them. It also works extremely well with Vienna Ensemble Pro (which hosts most of my samples on my slave MacPros). But for MIDI orchestration most composers I know use either Digital Performer, Cubase or Logic.
You can brick a 2012 Retina iMac with Yosemite, that’s how bad it is, a $3000 computer will run worse than a 386 with Windows 95, not an exaggeration. Basically the whole point in having a multi-computer setup is to have a mini supercomputer in your home able to spread out resource heavy music software amount them.
Your camera is an extension of your eyes…and if you are engaging with them and making them feel comfortable in front of the camera that will come across in your images. Even if a particular pose has been done before…and it most likely has…you can make it yours by not focusing so much on the posing itself, but more on connecting with your subject in a way that draws your viewers in…and makes them want to keep looking. Particularly in urban settings, which are obviously my favorite, you definitely have grunge to deal with.
Check your local music store or look at a popular website like Sweetwater or Musician’s Friend (there are many sites like these), and look for audio interfaces.
Some home studios go overboard with treatment which is not only unnecessary, but usually kills all room sound when tracking which to my ears sounds dead and boring. For newer Macs, 2012 and above, with 16GB of RAM and an SSD, OS X 10.11 El Capitan is good. I happen to be a HUGE germaphobe…I can’t even begin to tell you how true that is…yet, somehow when I am shooting I can overlook a myriad of things that on a daily basis would make my skin crawl. But really for anything older than before, stay with OS X Mavericks or Snow Leopard, the performance is superior.
I’ve never had anyone complain and I do make the safety of my clients a huge priority, so I would not put them in a situation that would be dangerous…but, dirty…yes.
I have seen many users regret upgrading to Yosemite and El Capitan, and it’s very hard to revert back without erasing everything.
Digital Performer, Sibelius, FCPX and Photoshop are the main apps, but this MacPro also acts as my internet computer, and is also the host for the Vienna Ensemble slave MacPro.
