To get the best results out of digital photography portrait making, you need the guidance and proven techniques that only a professional can provide. That's exactly what you'll find here. The advice and information is highlighted with illustrations and screen captures, as well as some 300 color and black-and-white photographs. In nontechnical language, the pros cover the various types of digital cameras available, including compact, single-lens reflex (SLR), and specialized "gadget" models. See how to create a home studio; begin to understand the basics of portrait composition, texture and mood. Color, computer manipulation, and getting the most from your digital outputs are included. Topics also covered are portrait photography using duotones, tritones and sepia tones, manipulating light and shadow, and correcting mistakes. You'll find invaluable practical tips for wedding photography, capturing kids at play, family portraits, candid and street portraits, and more, including the special challenge of shooting at night.
