I purchased a second hand 2004 edition book for £1.88, but a new 2012 will cost £10.99 upwards.
In my opinion the author has produced a well written book with plenty of images to show with lighting, positioning head, arms and body to create a better and pleasing image.
It has a certain amount of humour, which is unlike Scott Kelby’s laid back style, which some do find irritating.
The book is written and directed to a photographer in a studio environment.
I came with a different perspective, as my niche is ‘Capture the Moment’ portraits and of course you cannot pose your subject under these conditions.
My only small criticism is that it does focus mainly on the female subject with hardly any male reference.
So I wanted a guide on how to achieve better composed images when looking through the viewfinder and this for the price has ticked all the boxes.
