Should have been titled "My fave pictures of Big Girls"
on 15 September 2011
I was seriously underwhelmed by this book. There is little evidence of the 'Excellence' of the title and it's only when you get in to it that you realise the authors speciality is shooting plus size girls. Nothing wrong with that per se, but it's NOT what it says on the cover. In fact if you look at the cover image carefully you'll see it's been cropped - to make a larger girl appear somewhat slimmer than she is inside. Now I'm a pretty average photographer but if these were my pictures they would not see the light of day in print.
Other gripes, when it comes to posing all the cliche's are there including the heel caught in knickers shot. Photographically some of the images demonstrate blown highlights, others are flat, some just badly constructed and many are just not boudoir.
Best bits: the last few pages where the author has added some images by other boudoir photographers.
