If you're looking for anything approaching the eroticism of BEL AMI's various products, look elsewhere! The cover photo is just about as "sexy" as it gets. This is a nice collection of photographs of young men who have clearly been asked to "drop their trousers" for a photographer. The ages range from 20 to 30ish and the expressions on their faces range from blank to slightly embarrassed. An oddly tentative and totally unnecessary book.

The men are young, handsome, built well, and all appear to be having a good time in this book of color photographs by Sam Carson. Much has been made that this is the first book of this sort by Carson who is an architect by profession although apparently he has been doing this kind of photography for sometime. Additionally, all the models are amateurs and doing this for the first time. Hence the title FIRST EXPOSURE. It shouldn't be a great leap, however, to go from designing well-constructed, beautiful buildings to photographing well-built beautiful bodies. After all, f stops and apertures can be learned by taking a class or picking up a camera manual; people with a photographer's eye are born, not taught.
About half the models here are nude; the others, just as fetching, are advertisements for all the brands of men's underwear. Some of the companies represented here should pay Mr. Carson a fee for all this free publicity.
Almost all these stunning photographs appear to be shot in natural light. No strobe light will ever light a photograph as beautifully as nature does.
There isn't a mediocre photograph in the entire collection here. Finally, thank you, Mr. Carson, for not telling us what we are seeing. There is not one word of description or explanation about any of the photographs. Nor do we need any.

I have one question; why couldn't some of the models been outdoor? Likewise many of the shots are great others are a little more than mediocre. And most being in their underweaar isn't a good idea. But still this is a great book that shows the beauty of the male figure with and without clothes.

Don't look ahead the first time through this wonderful photo collection!These smoothe young men all brought a sixpack and many showoff their name brand undies but watchout for that center-spread and the photos thereafter. They are meant to pleasure the viewer. Sam Carson is a well known California architect and clearly appreciates the male form and function. Let's hope there is a second exposure and a third and....
