As I am now linked to Windlight Magazine, I thought this would be a good opportunity to publish the notes from my talk on The Magic of Posing, which I gave at the Models Workshop in August 2015.

First off, I want to say here, that I do not think I am the 'best' poser in SL, I am a work in progress, as all models are, and I still make mistakes.  There are things though that I have given thought to during my journey to improve, which have helped me and given me goals to work towards, to continue to improve my own performance. I am still getting there, but what I will guide about today helps me, so I want to share it with you.

I hope that by sharing with you today I can help you think about and understand more about the craft and performance of posing, for it is both.  Posing is often the orphan in the attic when it comes to modeling, much attention is paid to developing great runway skills, and styling skills, but while posing is certainly taught, I am not sure it is really given the focus that the other two areas are given. Please forgive me if you think I am wrong, as this is just a personal opinion and I do not want to offend anyone. 

I will be discussing posing as it applies to runway, though some of what I will guide about could apply to photographic posing too, you can judge for yourself.

This is not going to be a 'standard' guide on posing, where I just focus on black and white 'do's' and 'don'ts', and rules - I will be mentioning these, but I want to look beyond them.

I will cover a lot of areas, and hopefully this guide will make you think about things that might not have occurred to you before.

And I will try to pack this guide with as much advice and information as I can. 

I want to set the whole guide, the whole idea of posing, into a context, to give all those dry do's and don'ts an overall meaning.  I hope the idea I will present to you will help you see just how important, powerful and creative posing can and should be. I hope too, through this guide to make you see posing in a different way, something you can
