My friend, Ed Verosky, has beaten me to the punch with yet another great ebook: "100% Reliable Flash Photography."

This time out, Ed tackles the (seemingly) daunting subject of flash photography. And he makes it all so un-daunting!

This book is more detailed and comprehensive than his "10 Ways to Improve Your Boudoir Photography Now." Course, that's not to say it's a better book. It's simply a different book. Flash photography is more a technical subject, requiring more detail and comprehensiveness, whereas boudoir photography, much like shooting glamour, requires many "soft" skills, like psychology and stuff, as part of the program. READ MORE?

You could probably write a book on grip gear. Tips of how to save money, tips of how not to have a catastrophic accident. A lot of books are written on lighting and posing, but not much attention is put out on the studio infastructure. Unfortunately many find themselves expensive mistakes of purchases of gear.

Things like what makes a good piece of grip gear? What questions should one ask when making a purchase?

In my upcoming ebook, I have a chapter dedicated to gear, including grip. While grip isn't as "sexy" to write about as lighting and posing, you're right, it's the stuff expensive equipment often relies on to remain safe and secure. Some things, like sandbags and shotbags, are relatively cheap yet I see people with pricey lights sitting atop wobbly stands without a weighted bag making it less liable to fall over. Go figure.

Thanks for the suggestion. I think I'll expand on the importance of these non-sexy, inexpensive items in the book.

I too agree that writing about grip is not sexy. However you can make it funny so it maybe sinks in logically to the reader.

When photographing motorcycles you can go with cheap grip gear and have a higher likely hood of a tip over which hurts someone or scratches a Harley Davidson Fat Boy. At which the owner of said bike is either a lawyer or a Hell Angel at which point fat boy photographer may need to learn how to run again. Or second scenario the light falls over and hits a church pew, sparks fly and burns the church down on the day of a wedding you were scheduled to photograph. Whats the probability of photographing another wedding in that congregation?

How and where to place electrical cords, should frayed cords be used (electrical safety)
What gauges of electrical cords should be used
Importance of knowing tollerances of grip gear, oops factor
Importance of knowing current weight and possible future weight on grip gear (are you putting a heavy beauty dish or a strobist flash on a boom)
Organization of equipment for tear down and putting back up quickly safely
What kind of knobs make things better, more desireable and why
How high should I buy a stand for
What are ideas that can give me the most creative bang for the buck, what can I buy that will allow the reader to multifunction using less gear- think your guerilla gear post

I hope that I gave you some ideas or scenarios that can be of use to you for your book. If my humor works for you, feel free to use it.

You know most of the times woman feel comfortable shooting with female photographer so it will be easier for woman to get a client. I always hire female boudoir photography whenever there is need of her.

sexy boudoir
