Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Posing techniques, part of Green Screen Techniques for Video and Photography.
Abba Shapiro: Now that we have everything set up, our lights and our green screen, and we've…actually positioned our model exactly where we want her to be, let's go ahead and take…some shots, and actually show you how we work with posing the model and some of the things…that we might do when taking the shot.…Now, of course we won't have her standing here so stiff.…So we're going to usually you have a conversation.…Now, it's really good to speak with your model or speak with your talent while you're taking…the picture, because they don't know what's going on in your head.…You'll be looking down at your camera going, "This is really--" and they're going, "They hate the way I'm doing it."…And you're going, "Wow, I should have focused the camera."…So, remember to tell them what you're doing and sometimes even let them see it so they…can see how they look because then they can give you a slightly different look or appearance.…
Let's go ahead and grab a couple of shots.…I'm going to go in tight here, and I want to make sure that I focus right on the eye.…
