The Guild of Master Craftsmen (GMC)
Great photographs of people rely - more than any other type of photography - on a fusion of technical, artistic and human elements, and an understanding of all three must be developed if images are to succeed. Whether you are a committed social photographer, wish to do better in photographic competitions, or simply want to improve how you record the everyday lives of your family and friends, this book aims to broaden the appeal of your pictures and provide sound techniques for their planning and creation.
As well as an in-depth explanation of photographic theory, image design and the latest equipment (digital and film), special feature spreads and case studies look at how to approach different locations and create distinctive themes. Most importantly, the book provides guidance on the vital human side of portrait photography. See review.
