I think the two most important things to consider when posing a model, especially a girl, in the photo studio are angle of the body, and position of the head. I have developed some tried-and-true poses and lighting set ups which I like to use, and then branch off of.
I made this video to explain the basics of what I like to do in terms of the two above mentioned elements of posing. If it is not clear, or doesn't answer some questions you have, about modeling or posing a model, please let me know, and I'll try to make a more clear presentation.
Over the next few days I will post some of the studio portraits I've taken to give you some ideas for actual positions, rather than just techniques.
