Art, Design & Photography

Photographers Sarah Plater and Hannah MacGregor present an authoritative self-contained course book on successfully shooting arresting portraits. Clear, concise and jargon-free text guides the novice photographer through the various styles of portraiture to capture subjects of all ages. The book begins with information on how to set up a small portrait studio in the home, including the use of backgrounds, flash equipment and other accessories. As a guide to the technical aspects of photography, the authors cover the essentials of correct exposure, white balance settings, and shooting in natural light. Post-production techniques such as skin retouching and colour correction are explained, as are printing options for portraits.
