Rolando Gomez's Glamour Photography: Professional Techniques and Images (Paperback)
From working with models to lighting and posing, everything aspiring glamour photographers need to know in order to run a successful business and take gorgeous pictures is included in this thorough manual. Written for both the amateur and professional photographer, this handbook explores how to build a professional rapport with subjects while creating sensual portraits similar to those found in Maxim, Playboy, and other men's magazines. Each of the 150 images is accompanied by explanatory text enabling the reader to re-create the shot in its entirety or emulate just some of the picture's techniques. Tips on adding personality to images, understanding how the body photographs, and taking elegant pictures of fully clothed models is also included.
