Has anyone gotten this book? Is it worth the money? Is there one that is better?

Great book. Bought mine from [censored]....pricey, but worth the money. Great for inspiration when working with a model.

I created my own by collecting image files from various sites(Playboy cyber club for one), creating contact sheets in PhotoShop(under File>Automate) and then printing out the contact sheets on some decent paper. Then I just punch holed the contact sheets and put them in a big loose leaf binder. I categorized and organized them with tabs. My categories are something like.

Seated Front View
Seated Rear View
Seated Profile

Kneeling Front View
Kneeling Rear View
Kneeling Profile

Prone on Belly
Prone on Back
Prone on Side

Standing Front View
Standing Rear View
Standing Profile

Miscellaneous...

This has been a great tool and one you can update and add to. Almost every model I've worked with has commented on how handy it is.

Hope this helps.
Tim

Are the models posing in this book dressed in at least a swim suit? A friend of mine had some cards that were line drawings but got complaints from uptight models that the line drawings were nude.

Something to thing about. There's nothing the book will show you that you won't learn by taking 10,000 photographs yourself. And it's more fun to take the 10,000 photographs. Since you're using digital, it's also cheaper!

I think the point of books like this is less to give yourself posing ideas as to show the models what the heck you're talking about when you start trying to explain a pose - especially fairly inexperienced ones.
