With two little ones of her own, Vicki Glembocki unleashes a brutally honest untold tale of motherhood in the Second Nine Months. “It’s the most disruptive change you can make,” says the author.

Levin’s camera captures the souls of her canine subjects; with this how-to guide, readers are given insight into what goes on behind the lens. Levin covers important basic aspects of composition, indoor versus outdoor lighting, and portraiture. Special sections include how to photograph man’s best friend on the move, and how to photograph darker-coated dogs in various settings.
