What the readers of Steve Sint's portrait book have to say:
"...for everything up until you take the card out of the camera, this book will provide you with the practical information you need for portraits with which your subjects will be happy (and that might even make you a few bucks!)" C.O.
"If you get a book on portraits... GET THIS ONE! You will NOT regret it! I may get a second copy to keep in my roll-around case...it is that good! Kudos to the author for a job well done!" T.M.
"I read nearly every book our library had on digital photography when I first got into taking pictures. This is the first book I loved enough that I had to have my own copy." J.L.
"Even though I have about 70 books on various aspects of photography, when I saw this book I ordered it immediately. The reason is that it contains material that I have not seen elsewhere. Lots of small details that other authors gloss over." B.L.
