There is so much detail to be captured in a face. Cicero (106-43 BC) said: "The face is a picture of the mind as the eyes are its interpreter." To capture a person's personality, there are so many things to keep in mind and the authors of Faces show us how to match up a personality with lighting, posing, and composition. Portraiture is truly an art and this book dives deep into the details so that you end up with a gorgeous portrait that both you and your subject love.
Not only is this book the most comprehensive available on portraiture, but it contains stunning images. Each image is paired with a lighting diagram, a description of why the type of image was chosen, and then takes you through postproduction to put the finishing touches on. The authors also take things a step further by showing you some of the most famous portraits taken and how the techniques of these portraits were obtained.
