"This book is an inspirational and practical guide to shooting fashion in a wide range of styles and settings, with emphasis on the use of lighting, rather than digital processing, to create a specific look and feel. Photography is all about light. Of all the genres of photography, fashion is arguably the most challenging and very competitive. And fashion is the subject that most students want to specialize in. The photography constantly evolving and redefining itself, and inherently more open to experimentation and personal expression than many other genres. Some of the images in this book you will love more, some maybe less, but all of them have a "spark", something that inspires you. This title offers the techniques that you can borrow to create your shots."--Wonderpedia.WetPaint.com
"This book is an asset to any bookshelf but really should be a table book. There are 50 artsy pictures taken by impeccable photographers. The make-up on these models is fabulous, and the clothing creates scenes from different eras, but lighting is the key enabling us to see the beauty. Light creates mood, and fashion photographers are highly skilled at utilizing it - as these pictures expose. This book is an inspirational and practical guide to shooting fashion in a wide range of styles and settings with the emphasis on the use of lighting, rather than digital processing, to create a specific look or feel. Some of the images tap into your creativity, while others may not be for you, but one thing for sure: all of these pictures are exciting and dramatic. It is easy to focus on the eyecatching models, but it's hard to imagine these photos without the exceptionally skilled photographers who control the fashion shoot."--City Book Review.com

A. It assumes you are familiar with and own studio lights.
B. It also assumes you are a pro photographer.
It is very well written in terms of lighting, angles, modifiers, camera settings, etc. nothing is left out. You are able to see the finished image as well as the set-ups. The book is short on theory as it is very practical book.
Bottom line: If you want to shoot fashion or learn how to achieve "The Look" this book is a necessary start, and worth every penny.
If you've ever attempted to replicate photos from a magazine and couldn't quite figure out the lighting differences between their photo and yours, this make let you in on the missing link.
The concepts in this book are not outlined well enough to be taken seriously. For that, I would recommend you look at something more comprehensive by someone like Scott Kelby.
