The Portrait The Portrait (Rocky Nook)
by Glenn Rand, Tim Meyer
December 2009

"If you are looking for a good basic book on portraiture that will provide you with an excellent overview of the fundamental techniques, then I highly recommend The Portrait: Understanding Portrait Photography."
--T. Michael Testi,

"Ultimately this book will probably prove most useful to the photographer interested in learning and articulating the rules of portrait photography rather than just moving beyond the snapshot."
--Conrad J. Obregon,
