This review is from: Boudoir Photography: The Complete Guide to Shooting Intimate Portraits (Paperback)
beautifully printed book that can be read in a little over an hour. Its probably the best book out there in this genre but is weak in a number of areas. First there is little discussion about lighting. The book has many pictures but very little explantion on the lighting set ups, camera settings etc used to create the shot. Second post processing techniques are little more than an overview of some of the features of photoshop. (If you are looking for a guide on retouching this is not the book for you. Try Gry Garness or even Scott Kelbys book for this.) Third little mention of plugins such as NIKS color efex and Alien Skin both of which have a legitimate role to play in this area.

Positives are some nice shots and some useful tips (especially the creating of tear sheets from magazines etc.) I also found the list of useful sources and contacts at the back of the book to be useful too.

Overall worth the price but this genre is crying out for a good definitive book.

Having looked at a few books on this subject this is definitely one of the best. It addresses the subject in a thorough and well laid out way, cover the different aspects of Boudoir from pre shoot to post production and (for once) has good quality images to demonstrate and inform.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful print, a good general walk-through, 16 Jan 2012
This review is from: Boudoir Photography: The Complete Guide to Shooting Intimate Portraits (Paperback)
This is a well-structured book about the various areas of boudoir erotic photography,
beautifully printed with a number of pictures for illustration.

It introduces topics such as equipment, building a portfolio, identifying client's expectations,
choosing a location, preparing the subject for the shoot, posing, shooting, preparing
photographs for printing, presenting them to the customer and all the things that go in between.

The material is presented as an overview and tips for the photographer.
The pictures are good and seem to improve through the book, there's just a few
I really 'disagree' with, but it may be a matter of taste.

The book does not thoroughly go through each aspect of the area it covers, instead, it points
in the direction you should research if you are interested, but equips you with enough knowledge
to start. Often this way it avoids repeating material you would find in most general
and portrait photography books. Sometimes, though, you should really already know what the
author is trying to explain, or it will not make a lot of sense--like the inverse square law;
but again, even with with general knowledge you should not have problems.

This was about the third or fourth book I read on the topic, it is worth the money and am happy to own it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 28 Dec 2011

This review is from: Boudoir Photography: The Complete Guide to Shooting Intimate Portraits (Paperback)
i have read many photography books on different areas of portrait photography, and having moved into the area of boudoir i was keen to pick up a book that would cover the subject extensively. I have just started to read through this and have to say i agree with the brief feedbacks giving good ratings. This book is indeed informative and concise and does give some really great info about the area of boudoir photography.

To that end i would also have to disagree to some extent with michaeldsims feedback. To mark the book down because of its lack of pointers about lighting set ups and camera settings is harsh. For my money the book assumes you have some idea about the mastery of light and light shaping, camera settings and retouching, and this is more about the "process" of boudoir and stylising. To expect the book to hold your hand and spoon feed you lighting setups and camera settings is expecting too much and all you would end up with are identical shots as shown in the book. This gives you information on how to "do" boudoir and create your own style and encourages you to experiment.

What i like about the book is the logical way it is laid out, from the very beginning to the very end, addressing all the stages along the way. Well worth the money, and as i have already said one of the best books i have read in the area of portraiture
