Rather than focusing on one particular aspect of portrait photography, this book provides complete instructions for every step of producing portraits with a professional look. From setting up the lighting, posing the subject, and composing the finished shot to retouching methods and developing techniques for the darkroom, each process is fully explored. These proven techniques for producing flattering portraits in a variety of settings will improve professionals' portraits and move amateurs' hobby photographs to the next level. Examples clearly illustrate every concept presented in the book.
