With mobile phones rapidly becoming more fancy and technologically advanced, we are all guilty of snapping away and making ourselves look good with a flattering filter; but there are folk who take the humble act of shooting a snap as more of a skill than a pap shot!
So the new instruction manual ‘Read This If You Want to Take Great Photographs of People’ is the perfect intro for people like me…and others who are starting to capture peeps with a DSLR.
Easy to dip in and out of the book is breaks down the segments that make a perfect picture, and covers all aspects including “Composition,” “The Gaze,” and “The Street” which means you can get to grips with snapping away in a studio or on location, It also has some fab “technical tangents” which are great opportunities for homework!
Bursting with iconic images, to inspire your beady eyes from photo icons including Richard Avedon, Cindy Sherman and Henri Carter-Bresson. So whatever style floats your boat, you can clock in and see the techniques the pros use to make it work.
With the note from a lawyer on your legal rights when taking pictures of people, I can see a street style hobby coming on!
