It would be easy to glance at this book and dismiss it as just another coffee-table art book, but it is in fact an excellent photography “how to” book. It was written in 1983 and it shows — there is no mention of digital cameras, or even the most modern developments in film cameras — but it still gives a solid grounding in basic photography techniques and how to apply them to photography of the male figure. Much of the material in this book is equally applicable to digital cameras, and potential readers shouldn’t be put off by the age of the book. Practical advice on things like the effects of different lighting, composing the picture, and displaying the final result will be useful regardless of the type of camera used.
