Overview

People love to take photos of people--and capturing a portrait that's more than just a snapshot is a dream for many beginning- and intermediate-level photographers. The latest book in the Focus on Digital… series is designed to help them meet that challenge. With each lesson presented in a single, easy-to-grasp spread, it presents the techniques required to achieve a portrait that's beautifully composed, well lighted, and fully captures the subject's personality. Award-winning photographer Jenni Binder demonstrates how to shoot in a studio and in the field, and analyzes the many styles of portraiture, from formal sitting to spontaneous slice-of-life.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Portraiture is one of the most common photographic pursuits, yet most of us who try to use a camera to capture the essence of our family, friends, and even clients could use a few tips on how to do it really well. This book dispenses rules of thumb on composition, lighting, pose, and working with subjects. There are not many surprises among Bidner's (Capture the Portrait) pointers, but they address the most common mistakes made by beginning and advanced amateurs—and even some pros. As digital photography's popularity continues to grow, this book will have broad appeal.
