    Extremely Great Book on Pin-Up Photography

    Shoot Sexy: Pinup Photography in the Digital Age [Paperback]

    Ryan Armbrust

    I just received this book and am delighted with it on all accounts!
    Paper-back yes, but very high end paperback.

    I've looked at and own a variety of books on Glamor & Pinup Photography.
    most of them I look at 2-3 times and set them down or up in the bookcase.
    I've gone through this 3-4 times just in the last 2 days and it is now my favorite
    one in my collection.

    Ryan starts off with a wonderful first person introduction about how he got into
    Pinup Photography, and how in such a short time, he left his 600 sq ft studio,
    to a now 4,500. He is a has a fun demeanor and is very enjoyable to read,
    and of course looking at the many lovely ladies throughout the book is close to heaven.

    He starts out as if this will be your first shoot, discussing his relatively simple
    lighting studio. Showing that it is not too out of reach for most pinup photographer
    wannabes.

    He goes into a very nice discussion about props and how in the olden days, the
    models always seemed to be doing something, as opposed to today's model shoots
    where they primarily just stand there dazzling us with their beauty! It makes it a
    lot more fun. Props often obtained simply at garage sales, flea markets and the like.

    After Props comes wardrobe. He shows and discusses simple wardrobe outfits,
    and instructing of his clients on what to bring of their own. Hair and Makeup are
    a hard challenge for most photographers. He advises having a special Hair and Makeup
    person for this. (If your just starting out this might not be as easy as stated.)

    Posing basics is where it really begins to become fun! He talks about today's shoots
    with such an emphasis on long and lean, to the pinup era where it was all about showing
    the beautiful curves of lovely women. (I think a lot is lost in today's images by comparison!)
    Posing is covered in good detain with many helpful fun hints and pictures. (This would be
    a great book to show your model what you are working towads.) He shows and discusses
    posing with props, multiple models ,and groups. Boudoir, Burlesque, Fans, Feathers, colors and
    Accessories. FUN FUN FUN!!!

    Camera settings lighting are shown. He shows an images, the set, and how he lit the lovely
    ladies. He does a fun group of interesting location shoots. Very Nice Camera and lighting
    placement overhead diagrams are shown for many of his shots.

    There is even a section on processing and retouching images with Photoshop & Lightroom.

    There is so much in this book, I can't imagine anyone ever being disappointed with this book!
    5 stars all the way for me!

    Every page is a treat to look at! Very easy on the eyes and leaves you wanting to return to
    simpler times!

    Did I say I like the book? YES I do.
