-Writer Peter Bilous is an amateur photographer. This means he does this as a hobby, not as his career. He gladly admits this in the book. Although he has some nice images, it shows in his selection.
-Peter Bilous is self taught, not school taught. His beginners book assumes you're at a level of using a point and shoot on auto and that you intend to keep using that. Amherst, shame on you for your selection of an author, get some one with more experience please.
-A lot of typos and information is frequently repeats information.
-I've been shooting with a dSLR and researching photography(self taught) for about six months. I didn't learn anything new in this book which is disappointing. The book talks more concepts and common sense with little explanation.
I would suggest you go buy something like Nude Photography: The Art and Craft by Pascal BAetens or Photographing the Nude by Mike Crawley. They are conceptual books, but done at a much higher level in technical explanation and quality of work.
Bilous has also included helpful sections on model-photographer etiquette (as a model, I know how extremely important it is to create a relaxed and safe environment for a photo shoot, so I especially appreciated this section!), tips for sharing work in galleries and other venues, and ideas on how to use your setting to get inspired for a shoot. The one issue I had while reading it was actually no fault of Bilous's, but rather had to do with the more editorial side of things (such as layout and copy editing). The pulled quotes that appear on many of the pages sometimes seem oddly out of context and occasionally jar with the photos around them. These might have been chosen better by the editors, or just left out entirely (For example: "Before you pull out your money, take the time to really understand your needs" fits perfectly in context with a discussion of buying photographic equipment, but as a pull quote, it sort of threw me off!!).
The negative review below really doesn't take into account the many pluses of this book, and it's for the most part just downright incorrect. Bilous does provide guidelines for what to include in model release forms, and even gives you tips on where to go for templates. Lighting and angles are discussed in-depth. Also, there's plenty of advice on how to find and meet models.
All in all, this is a wonderful resource and I highly recommend it. There was obviously a ton of work put into it, from the models' to Bilous's, and the passion for the craft really comes across.
I enthusiastically recommend this book to all readers interested in photographing the nude.
