From the picture of a happily smiling baby in her blue bonnet to an expressive array of images of a young girl, these photos by John Freeman show how to get the best portraits from a multiplicity of subjects. Whether you use digital or conventional film, this indispensable guide explains how to photograph in diverse conditions, indoors and out, with tungsten, halogen, or natural light, and using normal, wide range, or telephoto lenses. Look at the difference working in color or black and white makes to an image. Find out ways to make your model feel relaxed in a variety of poses, and get advice on using make-up and props; studio, low-key, and bright lighting; special effects and digital manipulation.
