5.0 out of 5 stars Great book!!, 8 Dec. 2011
I'm very pleased with the quality of it. Is a massive book which it will keep me really busy.

The Author works a lot hard showing details and important informations,trick of the trade and giving tips how to start into Food Styling.

I haven't finished the book,as I said is huge and contains a lot of information too. On the back of the book you can find a lot of websites to contact with other Food Stylist/Shops to buy equipments,etc.

I'm a Product/Still Life/Food Photographer and I think is important to know how a Food Stylist work.

I will recommend this book definitely!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not enough information on the advert., 8 Dec. 2011
As I said before my previews review,which I don't see here anymore,is really "cheap" in quality.

I had problems since they arrived missing items such as: 2 soft boxes(Continuos Light), and 2 umbrellas( 2 silvers), and one stand,but they sort it out straightaway,but I'm still feeling rip off.

They've announced 3x110w Professional Studio Kit,which means 3 lights,in my box came only 2.
Very little information the way the announced the product.
The sync cable is very plastic and does work only with one light,doesn't have connection with other light.

I've contact them and they said to me,they will sort it out with the missing "Light",and asking me to change my review.I'm not waiting anymore.

In general the product is very basic, not Professional as they said.For an entry level is good enough until would last.

If you've got money enough go for a Professional ,but if your not, wait until you can get a descent one.Get as much information before buying.
I'm Product/Still Life/Food Photographer and I can manage for a "while" with this equipment.
I will not recommnend this, is up to you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!!, 5 Nov. 2011
This is another book. I like to read different books in the same subject,with different views.
This one I quite like the processing images with adobe photoshop, which I will have lots of headache :)but is great to know the right way to photoshop Food. Frame&Composition,and Behind the scenes I loved it, Styling & Props, very important to know this.
I'd recommended this one,too. Great guide .
