    Like the sky and the sun!

    Light and beauty go together like the sky and the sun. When a professional photographer is in harmony with beautiful models and their environment they will create images that reflects this light and beauty. That's what you will find in Bill Lemons new book 'Professional Secrets Of Nude & Beauty Photography'. This book is full of exceptional images illustrating outstanding lighting techniques and beautiful models posed in flattering ways. 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'.

    Excellent book on example and technique

    This book is one of the best ones on this subject that I have read. Bill Lemon takes you through a series of several photographs and for each one he details what he did and how he did it. The details are complete with not only the camera and film information, but also the details of the lighting, angles, custom development, model selection and posing information. This is an excellent book to read through and study in order to expand your understanding of model photography. By including all of the details and what the photographer was thinking and what he would do different after studying the results it provides a great deal of good information from a talented photographer. It is great study in how to apply the techniques of lighting, camera settings and posing to get the results that you want. If you want some detail knowledge or have studied lighting and posing and similar areas but are having trouble putting it all together into a comprehensive whole then this book is for you. My only complaint is that it is too short and I would have loved even more examples of his work.
