    Interesting Thanks for the link! Some of those remind me of ballet and yoga poses

        The best photograph is the one imposing the questions and not necessarily providing the answers.

          Thanks for that link. Sometimes showing the model what you are looking for makes it much easier.

                  It's a very interesting link, although I preferred more natural poses.

                    For those on slower connections, the file is about 4MB... so be careful out there

                            Posing children

                            Saralonde, thanks for this. Very useful.

                            Does anyone know where I can find something similar for children?

                            Thanks!
