Contributed to a “How To” Photography Book

I contributed to a “How To” photography book on lighting secrets.  It is in book stores now.  I picked up a copy at Barnes and Noble in Union Square the other day (I couldn’t wait for the publisher to send me a copy).  The book is by Author/Photographer Rick Sammon.  He has authored dozens of photography books.  Here is a link to his very successful photography blog;  He wrote this book with another colleague of mine, Vered Koshlano.  Vered and I worked together years ago and I was excited to find out that she was partnering up with Rick on this.

Rick contacted me after the Digital PhotoPro article, and asked if I wanted to do a small chapter.  I am pretty excited as I haven’t worked on any how to books in past.   The chapter is on the beauty of black and white.  It takes 5 of my most known photos and I give an important point or two on how to achieve it.  The book is not all fashion, but a wide variety of portrait, beauty and glamour techniques on location and in the studio.  I started reading my copy and might be taking a look at some of the other techniques I am not using.
