How to Look Good In Photos by Kate Branch gives the reader tips on how to pose for a camera in any occasion - for casual, formal, kiddies (with the attention span of ten minutes), and group photos - to get the result you want. Branch teaches us how to pose for a camera, and what to do with our limbs without flailing like a fish out of water.
