Summary

Summary

Studio portrait photography, unlike natural light or environmental portrait photography, offers photographers unparalleled opportunities to reflect the character and individuality of their subjects. This book shows how black-and-white studio photography emphasizes this ability by removing the distractions of color. Every step is explained, showing how to create sensual beauty images, cutting-edge fashion shots, powerful images of athletes, romantic wedding portraits, sweet images of children, and emotional images of couples. Discussions on proper equipment, lighting, and development procedures make it easy for photographers to replicate or adapt the ideas in their studio.
