Dear all,
I would like to shoot for classical singers that typically look for more elegant classical style of shots. Do we have any books that focus on that specific target group?

I would like to thank you for your reply

    I don't know of any books to refer you to, but if you are looking at tutorials for more classical posing and lighting, may I refer you to this YouTube video that is a webinar from Sekonic that talks about just this thing. I recently discovered this video shot a while ago and there is a lot to learn from it. it's about an hour long, so grab some coffee, a snack and a notepad! enjoy

    Alex, I have given you TONS of information on this both publicly and privately!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! rolleyes1.gif Seriously - go back and re-read the many posts I responded to. I'm not saying my way is the only way, but this market is my specialty :D There is no book that I know of - you need to look at the work of the photgraphers who specialise in this niche, and reverse engineer what they're doing to get that look. Christian Steiner, Dario Acosta, whoever is the main editorial photographer for Opernwelt these days (ditto Gramaphone), and a few others whose images regularly appear on CD covers etc.
