The unforgettable face of a laughing child. Groups of friends, gathered for a good time. A loved one, glowing with happiness on a special occasion.

Bring grace, motion, and spontaneity to your portrait photography with the help of a world-famous expert. By combining solid technical skills with a creative, inspirational approach to capturing people in all kinds of situations, John Hedgecoe reveals the secrets of conveying your subject's personality. Take candid shots that really work; use studio lighting and flash to create fantasy, glamour, and drama; make the most of locations; frame the face and go close up; and add liveliness with props. Develop your own style--and build a portfolio! Over 300 of the author's award-winning photographs help show you the way. 160 pages (all in color), 6 3/4 x 10 3/8.
