In portrait photography, one of the toughest challenges for subject and photographer alike is posing. This is especially true when one or both don't have a lot of experience in this area.
I just found a terrific post on Digital Photography School titled 21 Sample Poses to Get You Started With Photographing Female Subjects. The author presents you with a series of line drawings that illustrate the poses discussed in the article.
Even if you're an experienced shooter, this article could be a useful tool before the session for brainstorming about possible poses. I'd definitely bookmark it.
