About the Author

Born and raised in Dallas - Gary Melton is a Texan through and through. His journey into the world of photography began years ago with the purchase of a 35mm single lens reflex camera at a U.S. Army PX in Budingen, Germany. Shortly after leaving the service, what started as a hobby and grew into a passion, became an enterprise when he started a part-time portrait, team and event photography business. The magic of picture taking lost it's charm for him, though, when it became apparent that taking photos for money was a lot more about business than it was about art, so he closed the business after a couple of years. Flash forward a couple of decades when he decided to renew his passion, but in a different direction that he felt sure would be more interesting - female figure photography. He was right, and he was also a natural at it. It took a while to make the transition from film to pro-level digital, and it also took some time learning to find the necessary artistic connections with his models - but as I think you'll see, it was worth the time and effort spent.

Format: Paperback
I can only review this book on how I could find it useful, which would be as a reference book. If you're looking to do figure drawing or some such art, this is an okay book to pick up. Some pictures are better than others, some more overtly sexual than others. But a few of the photos are actually quite pretty.
