Lighting and Posing Techniques for Photographing WomenLighting and Posing Techniques for Photographing Women

Women's portraits are far more diverse in their style than portraits of any other subject. From senior portraits, bridal images, and business portraits, to fashion shots, boudoir portraits and maternity images—there is no limit to the types of images you may need to create. In this book, Norman Phillips explores the approaches used by over a dozen master photographers to create memorable and appealing portraits in styles from classic to contemporary.
