Sitting Standing back view Poses fall into three basic categories: Within each of these there are varying levels of difficulty, so one kind is not always easier than another.

The model's level of experience and skill may be taken into account in determining the length of the posing session and the difficulty of the poses. While posing, a model is expected to remain essentially motionless,  and usually remains silent. To accommodate the physical limitations, a schedule such as 20 to 25 minutes of posing, with five- or ten-minute breaks is observed.

When a comfortable working relationship is established, many artists relax their standards and models do the same. This may be something as simple as not undressing in another room, or not wearing a robe during breaks. In addition, silence is no longer necessary if the artist is comfortable working and conversing with the model.
A more collegial relationship may develop where artist and model feel that they are collaborating.
