The Nude, Conceptual Approaches to Fine Art Photography, by Jennifer (Zivolich) Emery, published by Amherst Media, ISBN: 978-1682032527

This is a paperback fully illustrated book offering ideas for images of nude females. The book was okay, it described lighting layouts for the studio subject matter illustrated and tips on health and safety if using a fire eater, but it wasn’t very technically detailed nor did it offer a comprehensive range of poses that could help inspire fresh ideas. Only good if you want to copy the ideas presented but not much use in helping you find inspiration.

This Means This, This Means That, by Sean Hall, Published by Laurence King Publishing.  ISBN: 978-1-85669-735-4

I have just finished reading a good book on the subject of semiotics, this is a comprehensive that looks at how and where semiotics can be found and used.  As semiotics is fundamental to communication this book illustrates how it can be employed in practically any field of study.

I am currently working on me second assignment, the subject being ‘The Unseen’ and this book has helped me think, a little more, outside-the-box.

This is a book I would recommend to anyone studying the Arts, literature, Photography, Cinema, Theatre or even Sales and Marketing.  Perhaps OCA should add it to their list of recommended books to read.

I will keep this hand for future reference.
