While covering a wedding in Tacoma, WA several years back I got there early as I usually do and there was a used book store across the street. Ended up buying these two and then finding a placement for them. ;-)

I love collecting photo books!

So there's a library in the studio too! You could charge admission, Ernst. Wish I could see all this in person.

The art of photographing a nude has me fascinated but somewhat scared at the same time.
To do a nude shot in a tasteful manner is to me not the exposure but placement of shadows. I don't have studio lights, but willing to use my speedlights.

Thx for posting these.

Ed, You don't need studio lights or speedlights. Window light or those Home Depot Chrome Domed Utility lights would give some excellent results.

Added to the BW Collection. My very old photo friend in Vancouver, WA sent me this print for one of mine. Both of us have the same mentor, Shedrich Williames. After taking one of Shedrich's photo workshops we started
the photo group called the Inner Light Society which is still alive today after 30 years.
