Review: Hollywood Portraits: Classic Shots and How to Take Them

User Review  - Jessica Courter - Goodreads

There is no question- old hollywood photos have a quality and style that is sadly lacking today. This book goes into all the different things behind all those amazing photos. My favorite part is on the lighting. Do be warned, though, there are a few inappropriate photos and discretion is needed. Read full review
