Am I missing something here?
What do you mean, exactly, by “free download”?
The link I follow takes me to a site that will SELL me the book for $24.97 US! Now, that hardly seems “FREE” to me!

Thank you so so very much. I have focus on learning the techie details of exposure and lighting in portrait photography but completely overlooked an essential human modeling aspect. I expect your guide and download to help me immensely in the future. Again, thanks!

I twice downloaded the Model Pose 1.1 pro software but when I try to run it in Windows XP I get an error message saying “this is not a 32-bit file” or something. I tried forcing it to run under Windows 95 but that didn’t work either. Anyone have any ideas?

My dad wanted to have a nice photo for his book. But his photographer knows nothing about taking a posed shot.

At the end he gave my dad a blurred photo ID kind of picture.

I should buy this book for the guy.

Posing is a tricky issue in portraiture photography. It’s always hard to get exactly what you expect from the subject. The problem with guides like this is that they tend to make the whole thing a bit less natural for both professional and amateur models. A Portrait Photographer
