Hi everybody I'm new here, and I would like an advice from the experts

I'm an amateur photographer (with some experience) and I'm actually interested to do some trials with nude and glamour stuff...

I'm interested in buying one book of Rolando Gomez to start learning the basics but I don't know which book to buy.

I found the following three book in my country:

1. Posing Techniques for Glamour Photography


2. Glamour Photography


3. Garage Glamour



I'm thinking about the number 3 to start, but what do you think?
Thank you very much!

I have not read the first two yet, but I can highly recommend #3. I believe it is a good place to start.

I've had book #3 for a couple of days so far and I really like it. In about 2 weeks I'll be able to compare it against the other two.

I like them all, but then that's a biased opinion... Thanks for your support and everyone else in this thread, thanks, rg sends!

sorry for bringing up an old thread, but it seems pretty relevant to me preferrably I want one book to cover a lot of bases (selecting location, equipment, lighting, posing) but not necessarily going in too deep. And I have pretty much the same RG books to choose from; garage glamour, glamour photography, lighting for glamour, posing techniques for glamour. seems the first two should fit the bill?

so I got Glamour Photography for christmas. Nice book. But RG, why oh why do you refer to Garage Glamour for more info on that piece of lighting equipment (I think it was a DIY fluorescent lighting panel)? couldn't that info be in both books, at least partially?
