    I'm photographing a musical duo (bass and acoustic guitar) tonight....

    looking for some posing ideas or examples. they want a couple "posed shots" before they set up and play. I know I can find a good location...I just need posing ideas.. post your stuff or other peoples' stuff!

    thanks!

    Why not search google images for band covers/photos to get some ideas?

    If its a duo, you can always take pictures of them making out.
    If that doesnt work, have them each wield their instruments as if they were pre-historic weapons while wearing nothing but bear pelts. You could even build a fire and have them then throw their instruments into the fire as if it was some pre-historic homage to Jimi Hendrix.

    Yeah.

    What are you trying to capture, do you just want them standing around between songs? Obviously not, You should get shots of them while they are making their music, Singing, Ripping on a guitar...

    As for posing, it depends on the type of band, maybe a few of them tuning their instruments or something.
