David you are not a fauxtog 🙂 I enjoyed looking at your photos
as for the shoulder thing…. I tried to find good examples of it for you, but came up empty. Look in the mirror and put one shoulder forward, but lower than the one in back, now lift it higher than the one in back. Then look straight in the mirror, and put your hand on your hip to raise one shoulder and tilt to both sides. You’ll see the difference, I’m sure of it, and will have a better understanding of it. You could also do a “posing men for portraits” search. They may or may not speak about the shoulders (they should though), but the shots that work will always have the man leaning/looking/tilting to the lower shoulder. I was in awe of this when I learned it. Something so subtle, makes such a HUGE difference.
