Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The book shares with its reader the thoughts and expertise of fifteen photographers, including those of the author, Norman Phillips One feature of the book I particularly liked was the use of diagrams to illustrate the lighting techniques used by the photographer. Increasing the number of diagrams would make the book even better. Another major positive is the variety of models and the variety of poses. If you need an idea for new ways to pose your favorite model and/or you want to expand your knowledge of lighting possibilities, this is the book for you. Charles Heisterkamp, III, M.D., Photographer
