A great training reference.. Jul 25, 2008
I've always wanted to try out nude photography and decided on this book to start out with. Not only does it have awesome tutorials, but it has model selection, lighting and camera tips, as well as post-processing tips. It is laid out exceptionally well with lots of great example photographs and graphics. While it covers mostly nude photography of women, it does cover photographing men as well. This is perfect "get started" reading if you are looking for the art of photography and the nude.
Great overview of Issues related to nudes Jul 1, 2008
This book is a sort of guide to nudes, being very concise with lots of "tips" and images, not the best images you will ever see, but more to the point, perhaps the best images for explaining the problems and solutions of the nude photography being explained.
Furthermore, it is not a beginners book teaching you how to shoot your camera and what f stop to use, etc. It sticks to the point, which is Nudes and how to shoot them. That being the case, it's not an "everything" book, but a good primer and reference that is easy to read and makes a good, fast and easy to use reference for shooting nudes.
My only complaint is that it shows how to adjust some of the images--maybe all of them?-- in Photoshop. This immediately dates a book, but it's a minor infraction, and since PS does stay similar even over years, it could be helpful to those not too up on post processing.
I would suggest getting this book and keeping it in your bag for reference. Clear, crisp, and concise.
Great book!... May 21, 2008
This book is full of practical tips, plus some useful examples. I'm not a professional or seasoned photographer, so I can only speak for myself. Not only helped me on the setting up of the photos, but also with the "editing" part, when you manipulate the image in Photoshop. I definitely recommend it.
One of the best Feb 8, 2008
This book is full of examples and techniques for the nude photographer. Really a great book.
Digital Photography Workshops: Nudes Jan 11, 2008
I have not studied it in detail but it is clearly writtern and provides good workshop type demonstrations which a photographer could apply just as well to clothed subjects. I wish you would expand this format to all other types of photography. I like the nude but am mostly interested in other types of clearly written material. It is an excellent book and is erotic withoug being suggestive. First caliber.
