More of an instructional manual than a book as such. Bunch of practical and technical knowledge for beginners and can be used for photography indoors as a whole, not just nudes, but a very good start for a novice.

“True Confessions of Nude Photography” by A.K. Nicholas is much like a primer for those just getting started in the world of photography. With great advice like the importance of a great lens, (and no, five mediocre lenses are not as good as one really good one), to marketing your product and building a name for yourself, any photographer will find something of value within these pages.
Nicholas offers plenty of photos in the book, along with boxes that depict specific elements of the text as wel

In the Middle East, I saw how women's bodies were hidden from public view; in most of Europe, there was little prudishness. In my youth, I put in my dues clerking and st ...more
