Portrait photography is one of the most challenging of all the photographic specialties. The person is right there--it seems so easy! But great portraits aren t just about what the subject looks like. It s about how they see themselves. Great people photography is about photography...and about understanding people. The Art of People Photography shows photographers how to reveal the person behind the portrait. From the basics of choosing a camera and lens, to understanding composition, lighting, depth of field, exposure, and printing, and finally, to learning how to break the rules and capture the real personality of any subject, authors Bambi Cantrell and Skip Cohen explain how to think and shoot outside the box. Successful portrait photographers express their own artistic ideas while creating stunning, insightful portraits with personality and style. Here s how to rise to that level of creativity and confidence.
