The angle of the camera

Directing the model is one thing, capturing the image is another. Photographer behind the camera needs to know what he wants the model to pose, but to get the right picture, it is as important as how photographer position the camera as how the model should pose. Options are plenty, and all may result picture of different composition, and final image.
This image of lovely Brazilian model, Layssa, taken with a Hasselblad H3D39 and HC 100/2.2, in available daylight. I position the camera at the level of her eyes, giving the sense of image as the viewer is in conversation with her. I crop the original picture with a classic sqaure format so the overall composition is more powerful.
