Overview


Combining time-tested practices with contemporary methods, this guidebook details the fine art of capturing formal and casual posed images. With advice and guidance from the finest and most decorated portrait and wedding photographers in the country, this instructional discusses subjects such as lighting in the studio and on location, improving improvisational shooting techniques, and how to retouch images in the post-production process to create truly flawless looks. A chapter addressing the common problems in taking portraitures—from working with subjects with glasses to subjects that vary in size, facial features, and skin tone—is also included.

    All 'How to' books should be this good

    Number one, Hurter knows his stuff. Very hands-on. No stuffing¿all meat. Concepts re: light are very insightful. Ex. All photos are two dimensional, goal of lighting is to create third dimension. And, later, magazine photography tends to the two-dimensional¿third dimension 'depth' is created with makeup. I get enthused about a book that presents global insights and then gives concrete examples that flesh out the picture 'so to speak'. I could only find one quibble 'I have a copy-editor¿s persnickety-ness'. On p. 67 (2d Ed.) the car is identified as a Porsche. It doesn¿t look like a Porsche¿more like a Corvette. Excellent creative photo.
