Overview

A good portrait is a treasure that captures and conveys a person's spirit. It can be candid-snapped on an impulse in one hundredth of a second-or the result of a complex setup and a full day's work. The picture can show the full face or focus on an eye, expressive hands, engaging smile, or out-of-focus turn of the head. And, what's particularly wonderful for photographers, even the simplest camera can do the trick. See what's possible in a series of remarkable portraits--both artistic and commercial--all with short texts on their composition, hints on using color, and tips on techniques that help you take an unforgettable photo. Arrange flattering and mood-enhancing lighting, discover new ways of making your subject feel comfortable, and know how to be prepared for the sudden, fabulous moment that might never come again. It's an unequalled education in portraiture!
