I think beginning posers will be able to use these techniques to move beyond the cheesy grin we see too often in portraits. Likewise someone who has modeled before, and individuals with a natural talent in front of the camera, will benefit by learning to tell a story through improvisation.
I would also definitely suggest that photographers consider using this approach as an ice-breaker-shoot. Together you can find the creative flow necessary in crafting believable emotions and unique poses.
In a word, Martin’s approach will help you develop the special chemistry that can turn an everyday photo-making session into a unique experience.
