Wedding and studio portrait photography. By Jonathan Hilton
Offering solid professional-level information, this guide combines two of the most popular subjects for enthusiastic amateurs and semi-professional photographers: portraits and weddings. Inspiration is not enough to achieve the desired portrait effect; you need to know how the images were created. With clear explanatory diagrams showing the camera format, lens and lighting positions, use of natural light, props and so on, the book minimises all possibilities for failure.
