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.
