Overview


Redeye, poor lighting, and awkward poses—elements that can ruin any photograph—are eliminated with the tips provided in this portrait handbook for amateur photographers. Organized in highly visual two-page spreads, the 43 detailed lessons show beginning photographers how to create everyday portraits with a professional flair. Using the camera's portrait-friendly automated features along with a few manual settings, photographers learn how to correct exposure and focus for refined, colorful images. Unflattering flaws, such as eyeglass glare, double chins, and excess weight, can be minimized by following tips on proper posing, finding the right location, and using the best light. A section on digital imaging software teaches photographers how to "erase" blemishes, turn a color image into a classic black-and-white portrait, and even add color through digital toning. A gallery of professional images provides the perfect blend of technique and inspiration to help amateur photographers attain the mastery and photographic artistry they desire.
