This week was all about taking charge with your subject and helping them pose. From shooting above to giving them something to do with their hands, you took my posing tips to help enhance your photographs. By giving your subject a little direction with how they appear, you take your snapshots to portraits.

Here are this week’s 15 Posed Photographs.

10. Mary Richards – Another relaxed and gorgeous photograph! I like that she is seated and doing something with her hands. Hands can always be an issue if you don’t know what to do with them!
