Product Description

Product Description

For the first time ever, world-famous photographer and fashion lighting instructor Frank Doorhof takes you behind the scenes to reveal every step of his model-photography workflow–the same workflow that has made him a hero to photographers around the world thanks to his practical, budget conscious, no-nonsense approach.

In this groundbreaking book, Frank starts right at the beginning with how to find models, find great locations, work with backgrounds (you’ll be amazed at his tricks for creating stunning backgrounds for just a few bucks), and work by yourself or with a team (stylist, hair stylist, and makeup artist) to create an image that will get your photography noticed. Then, it’s on to an in-depth look at the lighting setups and looks that made Frank famous (complete with diagrams and detailed explanations).

You’ll see how Frank lights his images (you’ll be shocked at how simple most of his lighting setups are and you’ll be able to create these same setups yourself), plus he covers the critical little stuff nobody else is talking about, including: how to calibrate your monitor (and why it’s so important); how to use a color target to nail your color every single time; and why (and how) to use a light meter to get consistent, reproducible lighting each and every shoot.

Frank also shares his own retouching techniques through step-by-step tutorials, and he takes you from start to finish through a number of different looks so you can see exactly how it’s done, and recreate these same looks yourself. If you’ve ever wished there was one book that covers it all, the whole process of photographing models from start to finish, not leaving anything out, then this is the book for you.

By Martin Turner HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Mastering the Model Shoot is a front-to-back guide on how to set up a shoot, work with the model, light, pose and execute the images, post-process them and sell them. It's written for people who are photographic professionals, who aspire to be, or who are very, very serious amateurs.

As such there is much more about marketing, building up a portfolio, work flow, colour calibration and solving problems than in other books on the same subject. Commensurately, there is no information about how to buy your first camera, how to focus it and what to do when it stops working: it isn't that kind of book.

If you quite fancy shooting some nice pictures of models and getting to know your camera equipment better, then I recommend Photographing Models: 1,000 Poses. If you want to earn money from photography, be taken seriously in the profession and land some big gigs, then I recommend this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Resource 29 Dec 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I own quite a few photography related books and buy regular magazines always looking for something a bit different. This book is something different it contains such a wealth and depth of detail it is a must for the serious amateur and budding professional. The images in the book I think are worth the price alone. There is so much good content from ideas, lighting advice, general advice on the full process. And again there is so much inspiration from the images.

This is a great book. Franks view of photography is great, a brilliant mix of being laid back, having great attention to detail and using whatever he can to get the shot.
