Overview

Great portraits go beyond a mere record of a face. They reveal one of the millions of intimate human moments that make up a life. In Beyond Portraiture, renowned photographer Bryan Peterson shows how to spot those “ah-ha!” moments and capture them forever. A teary child...old people laughing together...a smiling girl with big, big hair. Everyone remember pictures like these, usually taken by a mother, a father, a friend holding a camera, forever preserving small yet revealing vignettes of our personal histories. But we always relied on pure luck and chance to catch those moments. Peterson’s approach explains what makes a photo memorable, how to spot the universal themes that everyone can identify with, and how to use lighting, setting, and exposure to reveal the wonder and the joy of everyday moments. Beyond Portraiture makes it easy to create indelible memories with light and shadow.

Good book on understanding and overcoming the psychological barrier to approaching strangers. Other technical details is so so if you already know about the lighting and lens selection. The book is geared towards stock photos -- forget about posing and capturing the personality of your subject. If you buy this book, forget about the PPSOP class of the same title. You will get a lot more out of this book than from that class, which is 20 times more expensive than the book.
