About a year and a half ago I was introduced to Katie Evans' first photography book The Key to Taking Pictures Like a Professional Photographer (you can read my review of that book HERE). It changed my life. Seriously. The book has had an unbelievable impact on how I capture life's important (and not so important) moments. I now feel very confident in my photography skills, and I have Katie and her book (and lots of practice) to thank for that. So when Katie contacted me a couple months ago and asked if I would review her newest photography eBook, The Key to Natural Posing, I didn't hesitate to say yes.
The Key to Natural Posing is a great guide. Katie includes tons of sample shots and the information she shares is so thorough and detailed. The book is 99 pages of valuable information on a wide range of subjects... photographing newborns, babies and toddlers, kids, high school seniors, couples, families, and large groups. My favorite chapter is the newborns. Oh how I wish I had this book when I had newborns to take pictures of! Katie has fantastic, easy ideas for getting those perfect, super-sweet photos. She also includes great tips on getting kids to open up in front of the camera. As Katie says in the book "... posing is not necessarily about telling your subject exactly how to stand and how far to tilt your head to the right. Natural posing is about knowing how to interact with and what to say to your subject(s) in order to get them in the right frame of mind so that they essentially pose themselves."
Katie has hit another home run with her latest book, and I can't wait to use some of her tips when I'm trying to get great Christmas card photos of my girls this year. Want a sneak peek of the eBook? Here are a few sample pages...
