    Highly recommended

    Norman Philips is a well known portrait photographer. I now have 17 Nook books about photography, many of which are about portraits. This book is one of the best when it comes to information. Shooting low key for Philips is not just a matter of making the scene darker. He uses equipment that I never considered and cautions about camera settings. I plan to shoot low key just as Philips recommends. It is important to have your own style, but for technique, this book offers the information that I need.
