Synopsis

Want to shoot glamour photography with your digital camera but don't know where to start? Then this is the book for you, aimed at the photographer who knows their camera, but nothing about the world of glamour photography. It kicks off with a discussion on the hardware you do and don't need, whether filters are any use in a digital age, and what are truly essential accessories. A quick word on RAW versus JPEG then it's on to mastering lighting and the key to successful glamour shots. The impact and significance of early morning, direct overhead, diffused light are discussed, along with shooting into the sun and artificial light sources. There are two chapters on the practicalities of shooting: on location and in the studio. At all times, there's advice for the beginner to explain what you need to know now and what you'll need to consider when you have more experience. Composition is an essential element but there's none more so that dealing with models. This has a whole chapter to itself. Discover how to approach a shoot, put the model at their ease, get through the technical challenges while keeping in control of the shoot. It's all here with clear advice and anecdotes from actual shoots to back it up.
