Beyond Portraiture Photography Book Review

If the previous two books (Understanding Exposure and Learning to See Creatively) by Bryan Peterson enlarged your knowledge of photography and exited more your passion for this art, heres another book written by this master of photo explanations: Beyond Portraiture: Creative People Photography, which, obviously, addresses to those of you who want to specialize in portraits.

Beyond Portraiture

In Beyond Portraiture, renowned photographer Bryan Peterson shows how to spot those “ah-ha!” moments and capture them forever. A teary child…old people laughing together…a smiling girl with big, big hair. Everyone remember pictures like these, usually taken by a mother, a father, a friend holding a camera, forever preserving small yet revealing vignettes of our personal histories. But we always relied on pure luck and chance to catch those moments. Petersons approach explains what makes a photo memorable, how to spot the universal themes that everyone can identify with, and how to use lighting, setting, and exposure to reveal the wonder and the joy of everyday moments.

In these 160 pages, it is assumed the reader already knows the basic photography rules regarding composition and exposure, but, you shoot in fully automatic mode, you will get something out by applying the information in this book, but you wont be too sure about why and how. This book will take you to the next level of photography, inspiring to examine the faces of the people being photographed.

By Laura

I started photography as a hobby in 2005, during college. My passion slowly became a more important part of my life since 2008. Because of using a combination of my photographic knowledge, with those of internet marketing, I like to call myself a "photomarketer".
