Description - Group Portrait Photography Handbook 2ed. by Bill Hurter
The ultimate guide to create stunning portraits of couples, families and other groups of any size. Of all the portrait specialities, photographing groups is particularly demanding. How to pose a group? How to keep everyone sharp in focus - let alone create an interesting composition? Bill Hurter, editor of "Rangefinder" magazine, provides a detailed study of what makes group portraiture work. Illustrated with images from over forty top portrait photographers, Hurter teaches readers the techniques they can rely on to yield top-quality results. It includes: techniques for digital and film photographers, posing groups of any size with dramatic results, creating pleasing compositional forms, coordinating apparel for a cohesive group portrait, using levels to pose large groups, optimising lighting, both indoors and out, and controlling depth of field to keep everyone in focus - even in really big groups.
