"The vulnerability of an infant, the spontaneous actions of a child, the tenderness of a loving parent, or the mystery of the people you encounter on your travels.... These are precious moments for a photographer, and sharing them makes it that much more special."
- André Gallant
Whether capturing a child's first steps or the unique character of a face in the crowd, people are a terrific subject for photographers. Unlike nature or travel photography, anyone, from the youngest and most novice photographer to the seasoned professional, can find another person to shoot. That's why knowing how to photograph people successfully is a key skill for every photographer.
Photographing People: At Home and Around the World is the sixth volume in a series of instructional books by internationally- acclaimed photographer, Freeman Patterson.
André Gallant, Patterson's longtime teaching partner and co-author of Photo Impressionism and the Subjective Image, offers clear instructions for photographers who want to capture the free spirit of a child, the extraordinary life of a grandparent, or the mysterious draw of a stranger who compels the imagination.
This book features 100 stunning photographs with extended captions that include valuable technical guidelines for both film and digital photographers, and illustrates the superb craftsmanship behind beautiful photography.
