It was recently suggested that I attempt some "Atlas poses". While I make no claim of being "built like Atlas", and felt rather inadequate, I talked this over with a local photographer friend and we decided to give it a try. I certainly realize there are things, and as there almost always are, that could be better with these, but both the photographer and I put some work and effort into them, so I hope they're useful.

This photo was kindly taken by ~GlacierLightPhoto . If you're inclined, please check out his work. I think he keeps getting better and better.

It´s funny, you have a different haircut here... shorter at the sides? like here? [link] This looks "military" for me, somehow.
More "dangerous" than this one [link] for instance... I´m nuts :lol: , definitely.

I suppose the truth is that budget cuts ended up changing my hair cut sometimes.

Interesting. It was my favorite also (if I'm allowed to have one) when I first saw them. It's always interesting to see how that plays. Thanks!

Cool series. Definitely something I will work with. A possible guide for a variation would be to place your head down..bearing the weight of the world. If you used a prop, like a giant "work out ball" ( not sure what they are called) you might find your self placing your hands a little different.

The "Atlas" poses were a last minute addition, and though I thought we could get some good poses without a medicine ball, I was mistaken. It would have indeed made the head and hand positions much better.
BTW, this is my favorite in the series, particularly the left leading leg. However, I would like a bit more extension in the right trailing leg; NOT easy to do on the slippery black paper. Oh, and yes, for a pianist, Lee's hand need some work ;0

Of course, I'm not that good of a pianist either....

Thanks! And, yes, I thought that was the biggest weakness too, and we thought it at the time, but couldn't find anything suitable.
