How To Photograph Nudes Like A Professional
  • How To Photograph Nudes Like A Professional
  • Author: Ashley Karyl
  • The Marketing: This is the first eBook of its kind on nude photography that really shows how to photograph nudes like a professional. Learn how to think and work like a professional
    Covers glamour, beauty and fine art nudes. Including 17 case sample images with explanations from professional assignments on location and in the studio. More than 325 pages covering 23 chapters. Specially formatted for easy viewing and printing.
  • Chapters: 23
  • Pages: 328
  • Medium: PDF
  • Price: $29
  • StudioPrague’s impression: A guide fully packed with information on over 320 pages. Strong. Written in the author’s very own voice. It also includes a large section about equipment. But at this point it must be said that some references seem quite antiquated. And further: Ashley tells us the formatting of the book looks the way it does because it has to be “printer friendly”. This might be true. But there is no layout at all. It’s almost just plain text (word document style). As a photographer I wish to have something appealing for the eye. This is definitely not the case here. The same goes for the lack of photos, lighting diagrams and illustrations: only text, text, text. The guide sets the right approach but does not appeal visually.

Posing Guides

Glamour Posing Guide
  • Glamour Posing Guide
  • Author: Jason Ludwig
  • The Marketing: A visual guide with essential glamour model poses => How to pose your model quickly for professional results.
  • Chapters: n/a
  • Pages: 115 / 110 poses
  • Bonus: Model Releases & 65 page “Photography Ebook”
  • Medium: PDF
  • Price: $19
  • StudioPrague’s impression: A simple arranged PDF and some great bonus included. While the sales page gives you a shiny glamorous feeling, the photos aren’t very polished at all. The layout is simple but according to the topic: it’s all about the poses here. However, my experience tells me that the author/photographer did not take too much effort in research and execution. Conclusion: it’s a solid produced set of different poses, worth the price and works as a good visual guide and cheat sheet for any device.

In four large sections it is explained in detail and enriched with tips about body-, leg-, arm-, and head techniques. A lot of illustrations are included. If you are serious about understanding the topic “posing” from scratch, this one is a great and comprehensive starter!
