Description:Contemporary photographs that cleverly capture a childs mood or personality--whether thats a big, toothy grin or a teary tantrum--are easily created with the tips and techniques explored in this in-depth handbook. Often called lifestyle photography, modern techniques such as tightly cropped close-ups, vignettes, wide angles, and shallow depths produce images that are markedly less stiff and more expressive than traditional portraiture. From capturing great expressions and body language to integrating meaningful locations into the shoot to further express the subjects personality, this guide thoroughly explains how photographers can develop their image-storytelling skills to develop stunning portraits. Advice on creating platinum and chocolate-hued prints, vibrant color scenes, dramatic black & whites, and utilizing unusual textures or effects is also included.
