  • Easily one of my favorite photographic books!
    – The theoretical part features very well captured, clean illustrations that are clear to interpret. In addition, the posing model maintains the same position, face expression in each series of images, which makes comparisons between different light sources demonstrated a breeze!
    – Page design is clean and beautiful. Images are stunning.
    – The level of detail is spot-on!
    – Print quality is amazing!
