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!
