Photos of People in Books

As a wannabe photographer, I have often turned to books in an attempt to better learn the required skills. One of my sources is Amazon.com, which has a great system of posting reviews from ordinary customers.

I had to smile at and agree with one customer’s review of the book, “Posing Techniques for Digital Portraits”. The customer thought that it was a good book on posing techniques, but then add the following. “What I first noted was that almost all photos showed women. 110 photos of women versus 6 photos of men, to be exact. Further, almost all of the women were very attractive. The morale: posing for pictures is reserved for beautiful women. The rest of us are not worth taking pictures of, I guess.”
