Overview

More than two hundred full-color photos of women in motion and at rest

Standing. Seated. Reclining. Kneeling. Bending. Crouching. Running. World-renowned photographer
Mark Edward Smith has captured women of every age and form in every type of movement, then gathered his striking, unusual images into The Nude Female Figure. An indispensable reference for artists who have limited access to live figure models,
this remarkable book features striking images of shapely young women as well as elegiac photos of more mature women. The models in these full-color pictures include women of every type—slender women, not-so-slender women, pregnant women,
and women of color. A special section shows closeups of the hands and feet. Each pose is beautiful, and the unparalleled attention to composition, lighting,
and reproduction make it easy for artists to see the relationships between the parts of the body and to study the classic female figure.

• A must-have reference for all artists

• Beautiful composition and lighting by a world-renowned photographer and best-selling author—125,000 books sold

• All in color for the first time—at same great price as The Nude Figure

    real models

    The is book if anything is a great pose resource which are very difficult to find in many stores. The main thing I like about this book is the poses they have for different situations, and the fact that they have actual women, not Professional models, so you get several body types instead of just the one "Hollywood figure"
