    XMM = xiao mei mei
    It is a term that has some negative connotations associated with it nowadays.
    Not sure how to describe it further so will leave it at that.

    One option you can consider is signing up for portrait photography classes, if you are interested in being behind the camera as well. See how the instructor poses the model(s).
    Exploring! :)

    @kei1309: What is XMM?
    @daredevil123: Do you remember what the title of the book is? I am taking photos too as hobby, though I have not photographed a lot of models, still learning. I think it is 1 of my wishlist, but before I can direct people, I have to be a good model too?
    You only need to develop a good photographic eye,since you like art it should be easy.That should include knowing your equipment much like a painter.
    Different models are unique and not perfect so need to know their strength and weakness,ie. they look good at certain angles with respect to the shape of facial
    features,hair style,body type (fat,thin or full) and personality.
    XMM is acronym for xiao mei mei or little sister.

    Qs: How to be shot nicely? Ans: make sure the barrel of the gun is right between your eyes before the shooter pulls the trigger. LOL

    Show me your face, I'll tell you what poses you should go for!! Some doesn't fit cutesy, some fit sexy... in this case you should browse more lingerie/porn. What I'm trying to say is develop your own style lah. Best poses doesn't have to be posed... like my avatar, I caught it candidly in front of a church haha.

    TS is asking how to get models to pose well... and you're asking her to watch porn??

    seriously bro?



    to TS: watch some project runway or America's Next Top Model...

    but as i've mentioned, it's gonna be hard to get most local girls to pose like that.

    imagine this..

    girlfriend showing her latest photos to boyfriend.

    girl: "someone from clubsnap do a tfcd for me, here is the photos."
    guy: "all these pose very nice, but look very familiar."
    girl: "Yes, I know, I found a lot of photos in your computer doing the same poses, but all without cloth on."
    guy: "..........."

    On a serious side, don't the model think the photographer is molesting her in his mind,
    if the photographer is taking pose reference from "cough! cough! you know where"

    but one point to take note. local XMMs...most of them can't pose to save their lives.
    I agree.

    Only Kei is a cut above the local XMMs.

    All those who want to learn must look and copy his poses.
