Buy This Book! 24 April 2014
By Giselle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
At various times I have ordered books to help me learn photography...I open them and put them down. Never to revisit.
But this book ...All I can say is thank you Erik...for taking the mystery out of photography! He really shows you step by step how to make awesome portraits.

If you purchase any book it should be this one!

I usually do not post reviews unless an author bats it out of the park and in this case he does.

I cannot exclaim enough how this book has helped me.

Portrait 19 July 2014
By Pedro Schmitt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I knew Eric's work from Kelbyone (former Kelbytrainning). Thanks to his classes I start to appreciate the lifestyle genre in photography. This book is a valuable asset for those who want to develop skills in portrait photography, mainly in interesting locations with challenging light scenarios.
I enjoyed a lot and became a source of consultations

Great Book 13 Jun. 2014
By DLC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book. I have bought many photography books in the past but I have to say that this is by far my favorite one. Erik makes it simple to understand and gives great examples in the book. If you're a beginner like I am and feel like you just need some helpful tips/explanations, then this is the book for you. I feel like I really learned a lot from this book. I will always use it for my "go to" book when I need some tips/clues. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn how to take some great shots!

A great value, pugt together quite well. 27 April 2014
By Movielighter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am always looking to improve my work and was able to find some very clear examples that explained certain conditions such as using sun flare in great detail. You not only learn how the author conquered such obstacles, but you are given a very good explanation with before and after photos to see the difference. Very happy with my purchase.
