Steve McCurry is one of the most successful and respected living photographers in USA.He continued in photojournalism on graduation, and in 1978, having saved a bit of money, was drawn to the visual possibilities of India. Know that moment when you meet a person, either in your country or while travelling, a person with an extremely interesting face, who you want to capture in an image? During the past year I took photos of hostile tribes in South East Asia, on the borders of Tajikistan and Afghanistan, of gypsy communities in Central Asia and even in the former Soviet Union. The thing that makes the difference between an amateur and a professional in almost every field is usually preparation.
A professional photographer will start working even before leaving home, while an amateur photographer will wait for things to happen in front of their eyes in the field. When I recently photographed the nomadic Rabari tribe people in India, I took an image of an old Rabrai man with his younger brother. I guess it was just some local who tried to make some extra bucks or the cops(as usual) that would want some bribe of somewhat.
There are so many great poses for seniors so we put together some of our most popular poses to help you out. For this pose, sit in a chair and lean forward relaxing your arms over your knees and crossing them. Try posing with a chair by sitting in it backwards and resting your arms on the back of the chair. We love this pose, and similar ones, where our seniors wear a cute outfit and heels while posing with a sports ball, whether it's a basketball or soccer ball. Check out our senior model rep Chabeli's session for more incredible posting tips, and ideas. It proved a pivotal experience; the inspiring diversity of colour, life and activity prolonged a six week trip to a two year adventure. Or should I get closer to the person being photographed, but risk losing the authenticity and spontaneity of the moment? If there is one thing that I learned from visiting those places, is that most people would actually like their picture to be taken.


Sure, during those 10 minutes you could shoot 9 more people, but that one photo, which you put your effort and love into, will be so much more powerful than the others.
When I returned with the photo that captures the two brothers, I understood that this is the first time the two are photographed together. He is a regular contributor to the National Geographic Traveler magazine (Israeli¬†Edition) and he is known for his intimate portraits from around the world. I’ve known tip#1 for a few years now, and I almost always start off with small talk before raising the camera to my eye. It all depends on who you are, what setting you're working with, and what makes you comfortable. Sit on an object, whether it be a wall, tractor, chair, or fence, and cross one leg over the other. In this pose, face the wall and lean your body against it, while bringing your hands up to rest against the wall at chest level. This is a great pose for the girls who love taking pictures of themselves on their iPhones! For girls, be sure to keep the shoulders turned at least slightly to avoid making the shoulders look too broad.
With this pose you just need to sit with your knees brought up comfortably and your arms relaxed on top of your legs.
You can also try sitting in it sideways, with on knee on and the other foot on the ground, or try rearranging your arms for different looks. Start by sitting on a low surface like as chair, water fountain ledge or something similar. He travelled throughout the Subcontinent, exploring India, Nepal, Pakistan and Afghanistan.

I’m new to practicing tip#3 though but, this very day, am having photos printed and sent to an old woman in a mountain village I visited two weeks back.


You want to pick the poses that show off your personality and have people saying, "you look awesome!" when they see your portraits. In this case we had Skyler face the camera directly, however, she has her knee bent slightly and is leaning forward on it a bit.
You can try this pose in various ways changing the position or your arms or your legs to whatever works best for you. Start by laying down on the ground, or another object, on your stomach and propping your arms on the ground to hold up your upper body.
Then bring your knees together and spread your feet apart, pointing your toes slightly inward and toward the camera. Simply sit in a chair, or on a stool, and prop one foot on the ball with your other foot on the floor. Steve McCurry has been one of the most iconic voices in contemporary photography for more than thirty years, with scores of magazine and book covers, over a dozen books, and countless exhibitions around the world to his name.
You can check out Oded's new eBOOK - SNAPN TRAVEL- A life time of travel memories in a snap. You can try this pose with your feet laying on the ground or you can cross your ankles and have your feet in the air. Next, prop one arm on your leg to prop your head on and cross the other arm between your knees. Next, bring the hand closest to the camera to your hip, turn your body toward the camera, and prop your back arm on your knee. I, for example, often show the person photos of my family and country and might even join them for a nice cup of tea if offered.
Unless of course where the situation permits, sometimes I do take portraits of people without them noticing.
