Ich fotografiere gern, und besonders die Pin-Up Fotografie hat es mir angetan. Die Ästhetik der Aufnahmen aus den 1950er Jahren ins digitale Zeitalter zu transportieren ist mir bisher aber nicht gelungen. Nun habe ich einen Guide auf dem Weg zu diesem Ziel!
Der Autor beschreibt nicht nur die klassischen Posen sehr detailiert, er gibt auch Tipps dazu wie man diese dem Model vermitteln kann. An Stelle fader, unkommentierter Besipielbilder liefert er neben gelungenen Beispielaufnahmen auch Hinweise in Textform dazu, und das durchaus stellenweise mit gewissem Wortwitz.
Ein weiterer Abschnitt des Buches behandelt den Einsatz klassischer Requisiten, Tipps zum Aufbau eines Fundus der immer wieder genutzt werden kann, ohne dass die Bilder dadurch eintönig oder immer gleich wirken würden. Erstaunlich was so ein Kofferset alles kann ;)
Es folgen Hinweise zur Raumgestaltung, zur Auswahl einer Location bei Außenaufnahmen und Beispielbilder mit detailiertem Lichtplan. Insbesondere die Hinweise zur richtigen Beleuchtung der Szenerie fand ich sehr hilfreich, als Hobbyist ohne fotografische Ausbildung bemerke ich beim Einsatz mehrerer Lichtquellen oft eigene Schwächen, da sind die schematischen Darstellungen eine wertvolle Hilfe.
Ein kleiner Teil des Buches behandelt die Boudoirfotografie, im Prinzip ähnlich aufgebaut: Posen (mit Verweisen auf die bereits davor behandelten PinUp Posen und Ergänzungen), Requisiten, Beleuchtung, etc. Eine schöne Ergänzung, thematisch nahe genug, aber dann doch nicht nur mehr vom Selben.Lesen Sie weiter... ›
When it comes to model photography you find a ton of books on all aspects of boudoir, glamour, dessous, nude and fashion photography. One might ask if there’s the need for another book dealing with this genre. To cut it short: Ryan Armbrust‘s “Shoot Sexy” is not just another sequel in the stream of books on how to shoot models, but it’s on one hand a book caring for the needs of the pin-up niche, but also delivers good hands-on information on working your shots in lightroom.
What makes this book stand out is not only the selection of great pin-up shots Ryan is famous for with his brand Boudoir Louisville, but also his way of coaching the aspiring pin-up shooter step by step through the whole shoot from start to finish.
In his book Ryan covers all the basics from studio setup and model posing up to props and of course the lighting you should use.He shows that a photographer not necessarily needs the super-sexy top model he usually can’t afford nor the high level studio equipment to create great pin-up and boudoir images. He himself is proof of the concept – a lot of his work is done with some simple speedlights and a standard Nikon DSLR.His book shows that in the end a good shot breaks down to creativity and some know-how.
The really good news for photographers who are more interested in shooting and creating art than diving deep in technology and numbers: Ryan always stays grounded and focussed on the image and the story it should tell. That’s where this book really is different from a lot of other guides. It makes even the novice photographer feel confident that this task is not only manageable but great fun too.Lesen Sie weiter... ›

Shoot Sexy: Pinup Photography in the Digital Age [Paperback]
I just received this book and am delighted with it on all accounts! Paper-back yes, but very high end paperback.
I've looked at and own a variety of books on Glamor & Pinup Photography. most of them I look at 2-3 times and set them down or up in the bookcase. I've gone through this 3-4 times just in the last 2 days and it is now my favorite one in my collection.
Ryan starts off with a wonderful first person introduction about how he got into Pinup Photography, and how in such a short time, he left his 600 sq ft studio, to a now 4,500. He is a has a fun demeanor and is very enjoyable to read, and of course looking at the many lovely ladies throughout the book is close to heaven.
He starts out as if this will be your first shoot, discussing his relatively simple lighting studio. Showing that it is not too out of reach for most pinup photographer wannabes.
He goes into a very nice discussion about props and how in the olden days, the models always seemed to be doing something, as opposed to today's model shoots where they primarily just stand there dazzling us with their beauty! It makes it a lot more fun. Props often obtained simply at garage sales, flea markets and the like.
After Props comes wardrobe. He shows and discusses simple wardrobe outfits, and instructing of his clients on what to bring of their own. Hair and Makeup are a hard challenge for most photographers. He advises having a special Hair and Makeup person for this. (If your just starting out this might not be as easy as stated.)
Posing basics is where it really begins to become fun! He talks about today's shoots with such an emphasis on long and lean, to the pinup era where it was all about showing the beautiful curves of lovely women. (I think a lot is lost in today's images by comparison!) Posing is covered in good detain with many helpful fun hints and pictures. (This would be a great book to show your model what you are working towads.) He shows and discusses posing with props, multiple models ,and groups. Boudoir, Burlesque, Fans, Feathers, colors and Accessories. FUN FUN FUN!!!
Camera settings lighting are shown. He shows an images, the set, and how he lit the lovely ladies. He does a fun group of interesting location shoots. Very Nice Camera and lighting placement overhead diagrams are shown for many of his shots.
There is even a section on processing and retouching images with Photoshop & Lightroom.
There is so much in this book, I can't imagine anyone ever being disappointed with this book! 5 stars all the way for me!
Every page is a treat to look at! Very easy on the eyes and leaves you wanting to return to simpler times!
Did I say I like the book? YES I do.

I was at the bookstore looking for a good guide for my new camera and saw this in passing. Looked like fun and it was under $30, so I thought I'd try it.
I was honestly shocked at how good it is. It covers everything. Seriously. Including: - how to make the models comfortable - a guide to the standard poses - props - location and studio shots - tips for using Photoshop, Bridge, and Lightroom - general knowledge acquired by experience.
If you have any interest at all in pin-up photography, this is well worth the money.

Just finished reading this book. Amazing. It has EVERYTHING anyone could ever want to know about Pinup/Boudoir photography. From props, lighting, poses, studio, location, I mean everything is covered in a clear and reader friendly manner. My favorite part is shooting the models with hot rods. The book is intelligently illustrated and the focus on some pinup photographers in the back of the book captures the individual styles of each studio. I could not be more happy with this book. My only complaint is that I have finished reading it and have nothing to look forward to. Do I hear "sequel"? By the way. I never review books, but I am leaving this review on Amazon.

If you're a fan of vintage cheesecake pinup photography and want to learn how to do it yourself in the age of digital cameras, this book will show you everything you need to know - all you need to do is find a pretty girl. It is superbly illustrated and the photos in the book alone are well worth the price. The layout's great, it's witty, it's informative, and while it's a treat to see the photos themselves, it's outstanding to see how they were made. It also proves you don't need a photo studio to produce high quality images - you can do this on the cheap with stuff you probably already have or that can be found at the local hardware store. If you like vintage pinups, buy this book, you will not have any regrets.

I really enjoyed reading this book cover to cover. Some of the exposure and photography tips are pretty basic and if your even semi-advanced with photography you'll probably already know all of it. I did really enjoy his prop, posing and set-up tips though! I especially loved the on-location lighting setups. I also love how he easily shows you how to go from a pinup shoot to a boudoir shoot. Some of his retouching leaves something to be desired though in my opinion, especially with his on location photography. I wish the book went a little more into how to do the pinup hair and makeup, but that's just me and not really what this book is about. It also looks like there are plenty of other great books out there solely on that topic that I'll have to pick up. All in all a fun, colorful, easy read. By the end you'll have the basics down and know how to do a pinup/boudoir shoot, from set up to post-processing.
