You can get a lot of posing ideas by using what is at the location. Lean or hide behind a tree. Try the same with a wall. Sit on a rock. Give your character something to do. Sit, crouch, or try a fighting stance, if that is right for a character. Walk. Run. Look triumphant, or defeated; happy or sad.
I recommend having your model look in various directions; not just at the lens of the camera. For intimate scenes of affection, closed eyes often work well when two models are close together. Playing
off, or reacting to another model will give each model more poses.
Look at other people's photos and immitate what you like. Learn to notice which angles look flattering, and which angles detract from a model's appearance. Watch for when arms or legs seem to look too short from the angle they are to the lens.
