In this part ...

Portrait photography is much more than pointing a camera at someone and pressing the shutter button. You've got to consider quite a few things if you're going to capture someone's true essence digitally. You have to figure out where to place your subject inthe frame, what camera settings to use, how to light your subject, and so on.

Portrait Photography Techniques

In this part, I devote a chapter to composing your photographs. I also show you how to work with your subjects, gain rapport, and so on. And I cover photographing your subjects (including wildlife) on location. Last but not least, I cover photo-graphing people in your home or at their office.
