People love to take photos of people--and capturing a portrait that's more than just a snapshot is a dream for many beginning- and intermediate-level photographers. The latest book in the Focus on Digital... series is designed to help them meet that challenge. With each lesson presented in a single, easy-to-grasp spread, it presents the techniques required to achieve a portrait that's beautifully composed, well lighted, and fully captures the subject's personality. Award-winning photographer Jenni Binder demonstrates how to shoot in a studio and in the field, and analyzes the many styles of portraiture, from formal sitting to spontaneous slice-of-life.

Review: Focus On Digital Portrait Photography

User Review  - Karl - Goodreads

An easy to read overview that checks all the important boxes for amateur portraiture. Not particularly in depth on any subject but I learned a lot, especially in the later chapters on lighting and exposure. Also, as of my reading in 2013, all information was quite up to date. Read full review
