Overview


Christopher Grey follows up his successful books on lighting for portrait photographers with this complete guide to professional portraiture. Successful poses are shown to be achieved through a thorough understanding of the client’s personality and their objectives for the image’s use. Next, the mechanics of positioning the human body are thoroughly explained with special attention given to each part of the physical form to make it look its best. Specialized techniques for different styles of portrait (including head shots for actors, senior portraits, and editorial fashion portraits) are offered, allowing photographers to better tailor the pose. Also covered are different approaches to directing the subject, from very hands-on in which the photographer refines every aspect of the pose to a more relaxed strategy of general guidance with only occasional instruction for selective posing refinement. Using the techniques presented in this book, photographers will be able to more efficiently and effectively present their subjects in flattering ways—and in eye-catching compositions.

    A quick read with good examples. If you're a visual learner, as most photographers are, this is a great book for learning the different aspects of good posing. It covers individual troublesome areas such as hands and arms. Christopher Grey includes samples of each of these, along with others, and variations of each so you can see what a slight difference can make. He also includes a few samples of what not to do and why which I find quite helpful especially for someone just starting out with portrait photography.  As for the subject of composition and cropping he does just a well at giving straightforward sample images to use as a guide for creating your own excellent portraits. He also covers how these elements work together to make the final pleasing image that your client is looking for. A great reference book for the advanced and an excellent place to start for the beginner.

    An easy-to-follow book that can take a photographer's work to the next level. Great visual examples that explain the concepts the author is discussing, and how to make adjustments for better poses and composition. Also shows cropping in a way that makes for better final prints. Definitely a recommended book that all photographers, whether they are just starting out or have been in business for years!
