"A fantastic resource for teaching yourself the basics of the portrait genre in an easy-to-follow manner." -- Digital Photographer, March 2007
The phenomenally successful "Photographing People" owed its success to its inspiring and comprehensive showcase of professional lighting techniques featuring exciting and innovative work from photographers around the world. Now available in a revised and updated paperback edition, it covers the genres of portraits, fashion and glamour photography with depth and clarity. Although a vast range and diversity of work is on display, the key element in each shot is the lighting. For every featured photograph, the lighting setup is illustrated by helpful 3D diagrams, along with expert explanations and advice on potential problems that might arise, alongside suggested solutions. This book is therefore a unique source of information and inspiration for the keen amateur and the established professional alike.See all Product Description

There is no technical information in this book, so if you want to know how to set up your lights you'll be somewhat dissapointed.
There is also not much substance for what each portrait/image is giving - is this a dynamic portrait, is it a intimate portrait, what makes this an intimate portrati? The book answers none of these questions which is what I was hoping to get out of something like this. I could easily look through Vogue or any other magazine for a list of photos.
The txt focuses on gear (cameras and film) rather than the reasons for the image and what makes a a type of image.
It basically gives you different portraits from various photographers and how they achieved the desired effects. Each picture comes with a diagram of how the studio is set up, aswell as comment,s / tips from the photographers them selves.
I would say for the price you can't afford not to buy this book if your into studio photography :)
