Jeff Smith's Guide to Head and Shoulders Portraits

In most portrait studios, a large percentage of the sales from each session come from head and shoulders portraits. Yet, many photographers look at head and shoulders images as the portraits that "have to be done" for the mothers, grandmothers, yearbooks, and business cards-the portraits they have to get out of the way so they can get to more exciting full-length poses. In this book, Jeff Smith shows you how head and shoulders portraits can be just as rewarding—both creatively and financially.
