Format: Paperback
Just a few moments with this book clearly shows why Norman Phillips has won so many awards. This is a fantastic collection of portraits shot with low light to illustrate just what is possible when you know what you are doing. And the discussion (including light placement drawings) describe what Mr. Phillips was doing when he took the picture.

I think the section on photographing children (the biggest market for portrait photography) is worth the cost of the book all by itself. The originality he shows in making a truly memorable picture of the kids is just great. I never imagined some of the things he shows as a way of getting the best out of the kids.

Second to the kids section is the wedding photography section. Here as well he shows an originality in posing as well as in lighting.

All in all, this is an excellent book.

The text is of great quality. Content is superb. It's a good guide for beginners who would like to achieve remarkable low key photos. It provides details on how to set up background, what clients need to wear, and lastly lighting setup. I have read other photography books and by far this is one that I can easily understand and apply. Overall I would highly recommend this to others.

I chose a image that I liked. Read the instruction for the image. Then I would work on the setup until I got it right.

But sometimes the instructions are not clear so I observed the image carefully. Then reverse engineered the lighting plan. Eg. The `boy reading a book'. I was not getting it right until I noticed that image had some light being reflected from the pages of the book!

Please make this your first book to get pro-like LOW-KEY photos.

Format: Paperback
Well written, informative and an fun to read, this is one of the better portraiture books on the market. Although aimed at the photographer who understands F stops and lighting (I don't... yet), there was still more than enough information to get my running for my camera. This is a book I look forward to growing into. :)

Definitely one on my "must have" list.

I enjoyed the nice writing style of Norman Phillips along with the great content. Many points are well discussed that help to overcome the challenges that low key portrait photography presents. Some of the features covered include background selection, clothing selection, studio equipment, lighting ratios and exposure. There are also many great illustrations that are well summarized. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in this type of photography.

I bought this book along with Lighting Techniques for High Key Portrait Photography and both books complement each other perfectly. The same comprehensive and practical information fills this book and makes it a valuable piece of reference material in a photographer's arsenal.
