Book Description

16 May 2005
Creating persuasive sales messages is like writing a play: you need a plot, but most of all, you need characters. Whether you use individual figures to make telling business statements, full-size models for promotional material, or images for your newsletter or catalog, 500 Model Poses – an exciting new photographic reference showing people in a wide variety of situations – is the ideal solution. The book comes with a completely free CD which contains high resolution files of all the photographs in the book. The photographs in the book can be used, royalty free, for almost anything you like (subject to the license agreement). The ideal resource, 500 Model Poses contains images of people in a wide variety of themed poses, each of which is deliberately expressive to help you get your message across, conveying in a succinct and immediate way the situation being depicted. Processes that would involve a professional photographer, models, and assistants for hours can now be concluded on-screen in minutes with no loss of quality and a far wider range of creative opportunities. The book also gives detailed, step-by-step instructions on how to get the best out of the images and ensuring that you realize your objectives.

5.0 out of 5 stars A true bargin for this money! 23 Sep 2009
By Pickles
I have had this book for a few years now and would recommend this book for designers, art students or people who don't have a lot of money to purchase tons of different photo's. They are all usable and all images come with masks for easier background removal. 20 is about the normal price for one or two royalty-free images from a stock library, here you get 500!

There is such a vast range of different photo's that your bound to find something -

Leisure & Sport,
Health and Medical,
Business (some appear a little dated due to new technology),
Fitness & Workout (Dexter on pg 339 is intriguing, :P),
Telephone Poses (some appear a little dated)
workers (UK and USA),
Senior Citizens,
Musicians and Pin Ups.

The only bad point is some of the photo's are starting to look a bit dated due to the technology that appears. But why not use your skills in photo editing software and replace them! I just wish there were more books like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars A pocket full of poses 15 Jan 2010
This book is an excellent resource for illustrators looking for good standard poses of all types to work from which is my reason for buying it. It is well laid out and easy to find the pose you need quickly. Having clear images on the pages and the ability to take the same images from a disk is absolutely invaluable. Being able to use the images as they stand is a real bonus as is the facility of pre-prepared cut outs and some excellent advice on image manipulation. If you need a standard reference for general poses this is ideal.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disapointment 20 April 2010
The best thing about this book was the speedy delivery by Amazon... OK it has 500 clearly displayed poses, but the majority of the poses themselves are hardly inspirational... They are mainly what I would call snapshot poses, take the 41 Telephone Poses for instance... If you give anyone a phone they will naturally adopt most of the poses illustrated... Some of the poses are cropped at the knee joint and one of the first rules (guidelines) you are taught in photography is not to crop at a joint... This book is not recommended if you wish grab people with you images...

2.0 out of 5 stars Not really Royalty Free 16 Nov 2009
By Guy Fox - Published on
Images not allowable for any commercial usage according to inside disclaimer. Only for limited personal use therefore not suitable for most designers or other professionals. Disappointing.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Worth It 5 Dec 2011
By Necole Berger - Published on
Verified Purchase
I got this book for some posing ideas and was completely disappointed with it. It was basically a few poses with a lot of variations from moving arm a fraction to another fraction. Very disappointed and I ended up returning. Don't waste your money!
