I have the paperback version of this book, after good reviews I thought to purchase and explore a little of this style of photography.
However after receiving this book, I have learnt so much!
A great well written how to book, full of photo's, well written content, hints, tips, skills, and drawings.
This book covers pretty much everything, if you like boudoir photography as a style, get this book, probably my first choice off the shelf, not only covering REAL women, and how to shoot them in a flattering way, it also shows the final professional shoot, camera settings, lights and set ups, poses, what to avoid, retouching and is well written by a real professional, passinate about her art. Fun and very informative, if you choose one book on boudoir photography- buy this !

After recently buying a real camera, I have started to explore the world of photography, the 1940's/ 1950's pin up era has always held a facination for me. This era holds an aura on innocence, flirt, and highlighting by it's photgraphic style a good sense of fun, yes it can be erotic, but in a more charming less in your face way.
So to this book, nearly 200 pages, loads of beautiful colour photgraphy, and a very good explanation of how the photos were acheived, plenty of hints and tips, a solid base of good advice, from someone who holds this style as important, and in a slightly romantic way. Shot by a real entusiast, well written, and edited, a fun read, giving a mountain of set up ideas, skills, and creative encouragement. As a book on modern pin up it's worth having for the pictures alone haha, but add the well written descriptions, hints, tips, lighting, re-touching, model poses, skills, style information- it's an essential how to book, ideal for begginers, enthusiasts, and intermediates who wish to add to their skill sets, and are looking for some inspiration. BUY IT!

A little sceptical -I gave in to my daughters request, she's 18, and purchased this for her. Awesome, well constructed and thought provoking, an explosion of creative encouragement in a set of books. Just beggining she has had so much fun with this, as a whole family this deserves great ratings!
An example was to spill, spit, or drop tea on one of the pages, my daughter's creative side set to work, drawing a tea cup etc, adding colour, and finally painting areas with coffee, to produce a really interesting image, I think she may have entertained for several hours on one page. You don't have to follow the instructions on a page, but you can, and are encouraged to explore your own creativity, and get out of it- what you put into it. Summary a lot of fun, really encourages creativity, individualisation, and will keep many people occupied for a very long time! Well worth the money :-) BUY IT !

Adobe Photoshop CS5 Classroom in a book KINDLE.
Hi this is a great book, a steep learning curve for the begginer, well written, and pretty easy to understand.
I have sadly returned for a refund, the book is a workbook for the companion DVD, which requires the included lesson templates from the companion DVD, this doesn't come with the Kindle version, and I couldn't find any links to go and download the required resources, so the Kindle version is pretty useless to me.
I have returned the Kindle version for a refund, and ordered the paperback version that comes with the required resource DVD, and can't wait for it to be delivered.
So in summary Kindle Adobe CS5 Classroom in a book is OK to review on the train- apart from that it's useless, you'll need the paperback with the DVD containing the resources and lesson templates. The paperback and DVD will be an excellent read, and very useful, giving a good foundation of skills for CS5, based on a thumbthrough of the Kindle version.

Nice one!! seems all the childrens books, just bought are DRM locked through Amazon, when available as free library resources as English Classics, from online libraries. So i paid for the book but can only view on Kindle for pc or my phone, NOT a childrens reading tablet that reads just about everything else. Amazon should make it clear that the books are DRM locked on the details page before we purchase it, not ROB us by putting DRM on all their kids books. I'm about to close my account as it appears we can't return electronic books. Hope you go bust and youre all laid off Christmas eve.
Have a nice day, assoles!
