Hmm.... Another one of those topics?
Well, we see ppl going for model shoots with sweet young things doing poses the photographer requests.
However, ultimately I feel that the Photographer's thoughts are the most important. The pose can be extremely provocative one. Think of the model all wet, in a white shirt, white bikini, leaning against a fence, amidst the setting sun, looking downwards, extremely vulnerable. Yes, sounds provocative ain't it? But what was in the photographer's mind when he tells the model to pose as such? To pose for the sake of posing, to fulfill his personal desire of an erotic looking scene to satisfy himself (and others) OR to convey a message thru the model and her pose?
Ultimately, Photography conveys a message of the scene, of the person. Like what a Master told me, "What is it you want to show?"
