HASH(0xa0d769e4) out of 5 stars A big help in a small package Jan. 17 2008
By Mark Coons - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Digital Portrait Photography 101 (Digital Quick Guides series)

While this book is not very big it certainly had a lot of great information in it for a portrait novice like myself.

I had been asked to take some portrait shots over the holidays and I purchased this book to see if it would help. It helped alot. Mr. Hurter's writing style is clear and easy to understand.

As I knew nothing about portrait photography this book was able to fill in the huge gaps I had about lighting, posing, dealing with the subjects and much more.

I will use this book as a reference many times in the coming years!
HASH(0xa0d769f0) out of 5 stars Good overview of how to take better portraits Sept. 3 2009
By John F. Sullivan - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Clearly written, easily understood. Filled with good quality tips. One of the things that I clearly got from this book was the need for lights, unless you are going to shoot either near sunrise or sunset. The book helps you look at the shots made my other photographers in a new light - can you spot the rules they used or broke? Can you figure out what lighting they used? What are they trying to say with the picture?
HASH(0xa0e25be8) out of 5 stars a little too basic March 6 2009

I thought this book was a little too basic for what I was looking for, but is a great starter book for those who are starting out digital.
It had some great pictures in it and was very easy to follow. A great book to throw in with your camera for reminders when out in the field

HASH(0xa0ec8840) out of 5 stars A Waste Of Money ! Sept. 17 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is ridiculous. This isn't basic photography, this is garbage. There is a picture on page 49 that is so blurry that the models don't look human. I mean, really...c'mon. Almost every picture is a bad picture. You get better information on posing in the book that comes with your camera. At the end, the author writes in his Conclusion "There is no doubt that digital technology has influenced the world of portraiture." What in the world does that even mean ?!
The only thing we have when buying online is the reviews. I would like Amazon to have some quality standards. I understand we all have different ideas about what we like, but, just paging through this book and seeing how bad the pictures are,(it's a "photography" book), should make someone ask about acceptability.
Yea, I's only $11.66. But it's still a rip-off and they know it's not worth the hassle trying to get the money back.
Hey Amazon, how about some quality control ?!
