Overview

The difference between a dull portrait and a creative work of art that dramatically expresses a concept or emotion can be as small as moving a light, adjusting a camera angle, or turning the model's head a fraction of an inch. Michael Grecco is a master of creative portraiture and more than 50 of his innovative images are reproduced in this book, with full explanations of exactly what methods and equipment he used to get each specific shot. Most of the photos come complete with a diagram of the lighting and equipment used. Behind-the-scenes information on most of the shots is also provided- including the pre-shoot brainstorming where the concept for the shot was born. Beginners and working photographers will learn what worked, what didn't, and what happened on the spur of the moment.
