Years ago there was a battle between several artists in PPA print competition who all claimed "ownership" of a pose with a bride holding her hands together next to her face. They had all entered prints in competition of essentially the same pose. Well, shortly after that I had the privilege of attending a program by Al Gilbert. He had a segment of poses he wanted to share - not his, but all the great Masters. One by one he shared the roots of virtually every classic portrait pose in photography.
Jeff Rojas does an outstanding job of sharing insight into his passion for photography and where he finds inspiration. I don't know Jeff personally and wandered over to his website to see more of his work. Click on any of the images below to link to his website and check out his workshop schedule and newsletter. Jeff is definitely an artist who needs to be in your network.
