The Perfect Portrait Guide: How to Photograph People

by Enche Tjin on January 10, 2010

This is a dream book for experienced amateur portrait photographer. The book discussed almost every elements of creating great looking portraits. The examples are great. Description of behind the scene thought are provided along with illustration of lighting diagram especially if artificial lighting setup is used. You will also find useful no-nonsense tips in almost every page.

All photos in this book are shot by film SLR camera. The camera type, film and lens type is provided but no aperture / shutter speed setting. However, it does not mean that digital SLR camera users won’t get advantage of the information. Film / digital photography shares the same concept anyway.

So.. It is highly recommended for aspiring portrait shooters. Solid material for experienced photographer that want to move one step closer to become expert in portrait photography.

For beginner, you might want to strengthen your basic photography knowledge first, especially about photography equipments and terms. Knowledge about lighting are very helpful as well.

Note: the design and layout are very artistic :)
