    Do not buy!! Content is wrong!

    The book you get when downloading is "The Art of Posing" by Lou Jacobs.

    BN's policy is not to refund once downloaded as it is the publishers fault, not BN's.

    This book should be pulled until the content is corrected by the publisher.

    I got a $10 gift card for my troubles.

    Art of Posing

    I gave this to my daughter in law as she is taking digital photography classes. She thought it offered a great deal of information.

    Highly Recommended

    This is a good book. The author has assembled eleven photographers who, in 10 chapters, discuss their approach to portrait photography. The various authors discuss the how and why of their approach to portraiture. The book is filled with photographs of young and old, female and male, single and group portraits. Images include both color and black and white photographs. Reviewing the images provides a gallery of posing suggestions. While there is discussion on the importance of lighting, if I were the author, I'd add a chapter specifically on lighting techniques generously illustrated with lighting diagrams. As an old Chinese philosopher said, "Seeing it once is better than being told one hundred times." This book is both interesting and educational. I will be recommending it to members of my class on composition.
