Rate & Review

Though many factors contribute to a great image—lens choice, pose, props, etc.—every single subject requires well-executed lighting to enhance their appearance. This careful use of lighting to sculpt the subject in a flattering way is what distinguishes true artists from mere picture takers. In this new book, acclaimed photographer and educator Allison Earnest shows you how to use flash, strobe, ambient light, window light, and a variety of light modifiers to create professional-quality results. The author ventures into territory left unexplored in other portrait lighting books, showing you how to use light to flatter the unique facial shape of your client—whether they tend to have a more round, oval, rectangular, long and angular, square, or traingular face. With these techniques, you'll be able to accentuate the most appealing features of each subject and elevate the aesthetic appeal of your portraits. With problem-solving strategies for minimizing an array of perceived facial flaws, tips for working with individuals and groups, and much more, this book is not to be missed.
