Lighting and Posing Techniques for Photographing Women

Featuring 15 of the industry's top photographers, among them Monte Zucker, Michael Ayers, Dave Newman, and Kathleen Hawkins, this guide teaches professional photographers how to capture the most flattering views of the female form—and appeal to their largely female clientele—through careful lighting and posing. This reference emphasizes how from the very start of the process, certain techniques should be employed to create high quality images, such as using light to enhance a beautiful face and employing shadow and light to downplay any of the subject's percieved flaws or insecurities. With 36 detailed lighting and posing diagrams illustrating how to re-create the work of the pros, this handbook reveals numerous ways to create a technically flawless, saleable portrait of a female client.

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
