The Art of Boudoir Photography with Speedlights by Michael 
Zelbel is an ambitious creation of body art utilizing
speedlights and shoot-through umbrellas to create a
plethora of photo effects. The author depicts his
subjects looking into the lens, looking away and
dreaming.
 
The author defines learning in photography to be
an effort which traverses from bad to good. He
explains the difficult dynamics of shooting with
limited time and resources. The subject matter
of the photography is NUTS which stands for "not
the usual tame stuff".
 
Zelbel explains that bedroom scenes pose unique
problems in setting up light. Sometimes, pictures
need to be taken with a shallow depth of field.
In addition, small light stands fit better in
bedrooms with a limited size.
 
The author explains the importance of using lamps
to accent light. In addition, it's important to 
have no non-essentials in the room so that the
viewers can focus their attention on the model
exclusively. 
 
The Art of Boudoir Photography with Speedlights by Michael 
Zelbel is a very helpful resource for new photographers
to learn how to set up scenes with light, a subject
and all distractions removed for optimal special 
effects. The author provides a plethora of examples
depicting the camera settings and the set-up of the
scene for shooting.
