This book is more then just beautiful people and well-lit sets. There is substance here as well. "Nude & Beauty Photography" is full of instruction, inspiration and creative tips. Each setup is outlined in a narrative, with lighting graphics and equipment/film details. The reader can learn tips on posing, camera angles, composition, lighting, selecting models and much more.
Bill Lemon knows his craft and illustrates it with provocative and creative images. Further, he knows how to explain his techniques in ways that are understandable to average photographer. He gives you just the right balance between instruction and enjoyment. If you?re just a 'looker' or want to be a 'learner' I can highly recommend "Nude & Beauty Photography".
In comparison to other books available on nude and glamour photography, there is not better book. Bill Lemon does an excellent job of discussing a sensitive topic.
Although the book focuses on black and white photography, don't be discouraged if you are only interested in color work. Bill Lemon's techniques apply just as readily to color work.
Unfortunately, the book is not as in-depth as I would have liked (thus, the 4 stars). In addition, it should be noted that the book is geared toward intermediate to advanced photographers as he does not spend time discussing the basics of photography.
Overall, a great resource.
