The unforgettable face of a laughing child. Groups of friends, gathered for a good time. A loved one, glowing with happiness on a special occasion. In most instances, when photographers pull out their cameras, people--their moods, expressions, activities--will be the focus of the shot. Bring grace, motion, and spontaneity to your portrait photography with the help of a world-famous expert. By combining solid technical skills with a creative, inspirational approach to capturing people in all kinds of situations, John Hedgecoe reveals the secrets of conveying your subject's personality. Take candid shots that really work; use studio lighting and flash to create fantasy, glamour, and drama; make the most of locations; frame the face and go close up; and add liveliness with props. Develop your own style--and build a portfolio! Over 300 of the author's award-winning photographs help show you the way. 160 pages (all in color), 6 3/4 x 10 3/8.

These four "how-to" books pretty much cover the gamut in landscape photography and portraiture. Each is intended as an introductory manual for amateurs working primarily in the 35mm format. Hope's two books deal explicitly with black-and-white photography. The emphasis is more on style than technique, which is their strength. There are chapters on technique and other practical matters, but the discussions of tone and texture as well as mood will be most helpful to those who wish to make original photographs that reflect an artistic sensibility. The striking design of each book also accentuates a wonderful sense of atmosphere that is tender yet ever so slightly dark and brooding. The author of a number of first-rate books on photography, Hedgecoe concentrates on color photography in his two latest offerings. Both books are filled with many practical and useful tips for making better landscapes and portraits. Each bit of advice is accompanied by photographs that serve as excellent examples of the points he is making. Like Hope's books, Hedgecoe's works are written in a clear, accessible style. Hope's will appeal primarily to those interested in refining their black-and-white photography, while Hedgecoe's will be of greatest value to those who would like to take better photographs for pleasure or business.
