“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, Blogcritics.org
“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, Amazon.com
