Portraiture is the most popular and accessible genre of photography – most people buy their first camera to take pictures of family and friends. With the rise of lightweight, inexpensive digital compact and prosumer cameras and the increased affordability and accessibility of the home computer set-up, shooting portraits is easier than it’s ever been before. The follow-up to the highly successful An Illustrated A-Z to Digital Photography, People and Portraits is the first title in the Digital Photography A-Z series to focus on a specific genre. Each title in this exciting new series will present the key subjects and techniques of each genre in an easy-to-follow A-Z format, enabling the reader to use the book either as a comprehensive guide or handy reference. Also featured are step-by-step tutorials to troubleshoot every aspect of taking and making digital portraits, from photographing children, working in monochrome and using light for atmosphere, to making corrections and enhancements to your portrait in Photoshop and sharing your images on the Web.
