Leaping, somersaulting, stretching, dancing figures animate this book of marvelous action poses, photographed for artists of all levels to use as reference when portraying human figures in motion. Expertly composed and lit pictures of male and female models in suspended action show the body from numerous vantage points. Students practice figure drawing by copying the photos, while advanced artists use them as points of departure, altering body positions to suit specific compositional needs.
