About Posing and Sigmund Klein – Strength Magazine – November, 1924

The hardest work I know of is taking “Muscle Poses;” that is, pictures like these. In order to get a successful set of pictures there are a lot of necessary essentials. First off, you must have a good model, one who has the shape and the development and who knows how to pose. Then you must have an experienced, skillful and extremely patient photographer. Last of all you need a few ideas, original ones if possible. That last is the chief difficulty.
