No more formal, corporate-style poses—this book offers a modern, vibrant approach, capturing a moment in the subject’s lifestyle. It discusses technical aspects from equipment to exposure, aperture, metering, shutter speed, depth of field, and white balance settings, in addition to how natural light, color, and movement affect an image. The book also covers posing, home studios, backgrounds, artificial light, and pre-shoot prep such as make-up, hair styling, and clothing. Post-production topics include skin retouching, color correction, printing options, and presentation.

The difference between this book and other guides is that this one is set up as a path to follow rather than just a cursory list of concepts and options. It will make you a better photographer in a much shorter time.
