Renowned fine art erotic portrait photographer Scott Church presents this comprehensive beginner's guide to the world of glamour and boudoir photography.
From what camera to buy, exposures and settings, posing and lighting and how to find models to work with, this book covers everything you need to know to get started shooting beautiful glamour photographs.
It's got the essentials
At first I was a bit disappointed at the rambling style and lack of technical information......but then I realized this was more like a conversation Scott might be having with a beginning photographer over a couple of beers....then I got it. I've admired Scott's work for several years and this book is simply a frank discussion on what you REALLY need to be thinking about if you want to get started in glamour and fine art nudes. I wish I'd had this book when I got started several years ago...would've saved me a lot of time and headaches. Thanks Scott for having this conversation with myself and other newbie newdie(!) photographers. :-)

A must read for anyone who has a DSLR
After getting my new camera and having it a week I was still confused and fuzzy on how everything worked and how the settings worked together and separate of each other. After I read this book everything became magically clear and made sense to me. The way Scott explained everything in simple terms was amazing. I am now able to take a pic on manual mode and understand how to tweak settings to get the pic the way it needs to be. I still have a lot to learn but this book gave me a strong foundation and now it's up to me to keep shooting and practicing to get the pics just right. This is one book that I will always keep close to my camera as a reference.
Great tutorial, easy to read and follow, I love this guy. Scott is so easy to talk to and this book follows along like a conversation, no effort needed. A great book for someone interested in starting out in photography. I recommend also booking an appointment and letting him work his genius on you. Be it kids, couples or just you, his photographic finesse is one you will become addicted to.
