Go beyond the basic rules of photography to capture stunning portraits Portrait photography is a vital topic for photographers of every level of experience, from amateur to professional.
Without a doubt, the most common subject for the majority of photographers is other people. While photographic fundamentals such as composition, lighting, and exposure play a significant role in portrait photography, what differentiates a good portrait from a great is often creativity. Harold Davis is famous for his creativity, in fact he writes a column on creative photography for one of the most-visited digital photography sites, Photo.net. In this book, Harold will review the basic “rules” of digital photography as they are most commonly stated and then go beyond the basics to teach digital photographers when and how they can break those rules to create unique, lively, and truly stunning portraits and define their own photographic style by doing so. Illustrated with Harold's stunning portrait photography, Creative Portraits will both inform and inspire.
