Suzanne Boulanger   Hi Tammy,

There are no set rules on who sits or stands... I like to collect pictures in magazines, on the internet, etc. to get ideas and then use these as samples. There are many sites on the internet where you can find information. Do searches for photographers and you should come up with some. Good luck!
