For many beginners – and even some experienced photographers – posing your subjects can be one of the most difficult aspects of photographing people. This video from a seasoned wedding photographer features 10 poses that you can try without breaking a sweat creatively.
John Branch IV is a wedding photographer and educator based on the east coast of the United States. In his latest video, he does a great job explaining things for those of us who want to get into wedding photography but don’t necessarily know how to actually pose people.

As someone who is a bit more introverted than most, tips like this are a fantastic help in getting better acquainted with people photographing.

These events can be pretty chaotic and as a professional I need to be confident that I will get all kinds of shots my couple is looking for. When I get nervous or nervous, being able to refer to a list can be lifesaving.
