Overview

Outdoor portraiture can be one of the most rewarding--yet daunting--photographic endeavors. Here, Cathy Joseph provides the foundation for successful outdoor photography by defining and addressing the variables (such as backgrounds, subjects, and the different qualities of natural light) that can affect outdoor shots and that may result in lackluster photography, if left unchecked. In conjunction with over 150 images from top international photographers, Joseph discusses mood and setting, placement of the subject, and the various styles of outdoor portraits. Readers will learn how to manage changes in weather, the subject's personality, and even the incorporation of themes such as irony into their shots.
