Get started in Digital Glamour Photography (ASIN: B005DSAQEO)

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. The book rounds things off with a chapter on digital post-production, Photoshop work and presenting and selling your work.

Here’s the chapter list:

The book is available for download from in two editions.

Hasselblad H4D-60 review

UPDATE 18 May, 2012: Hasseblad is set to reduce the price on the H4D cameras by as much as $11,000 / 6,200 Euros on the H4D-60, bringing the price to 23,900 euros ($30,995 / £21,995). Please see here for more details.

The last couple of decades have been turbulent for medium format camera manufacturers, but now after several well-known names have withdrawn, the market looks healthy. Two new unexpected entrants, Leica and Pentax have added to the dynamic at opposing ends of the pricing scale, forcing the two established system players to compete fiercely in their traditional rarefied role as well as the entry-level.

Partnering with both Leaf and Mamiya, Phase One has developed a trio of entry-level Mamiya DM models starting at under $14k/ £9k while continuing to offer a wide range of Phase One and Leaf backs, up to 80-megapixels. Through various offers and incentives these backs, are most likely to be partnered with the 645DF body but they are in fact compatible with a wide range of …

Fujifilm IS Pro UV-IR DSLR review

Fuji’s IS Pro is the up-date to maker’s earlier S3 UV-IR camera, and like that particular camera, the IS Pro adopts a modified image sensor that’s not shielded from UV or IR light. Consequently, with various filtration methods, the IS Pro is designed for Ultraviolet (UVA), visible and near Infrared photography.

Although there is a healthy demand for DSLRs with IR capability especially, and there are number of independent vendors (mainly in the US, but the UK also) that offer IR dedicated and full-spectrum conversion of current Nikon and Canon bodies, it’s anticipated the IS Pro will appeal largely to the scientific and forensic communities. With the departure of the S3 UV-IR, Fuji’s IS Pro continues to be the only dedicated full-spectrum interchangeable lens based DSLR that has professional-level support from a camera maker. As well as official product support and 12-month warranty, for government agencies and the like, the OEM status of the IS Pro will be particularly reassuring an…
