The book begins with the most basic of principles and concepts and about half way through becomes densely packed with posing techniques, color coordination, setting up large groups and much more. I had to read these chapters two to three times to fully absorb all the knowledge that's jam packed in there.
Even though the images used are great and demostrate some of the instructions or concepts, the book does lack images when it comes to describing how each individual should be posed with words, supporting images would have helped greatly in getting the image accross faster! I had to read that section a couple of times to best understand what the writer meant.
All in all, a good book to buy as a starting point.

I was hoping for some really good ideas for posing families, especially my own family and my grandchildren. I don't think I found one good idea here. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Ripper69
I bought this used and it was worn out. Some pages were torn off but it still contains the vital information. I'm using it and gives great ideas for posing.Published 6 months ago by Finadenne
This book is a little dated in terms of family and group photo ideas. There is some good practical information for the beginning photographer or even mid-level learning to deal... Read morePublished on October 4, 2013 by Monique Goch
As a professional photographer, I found Mr. Hurter's book to contain some valuable information. I wish he had gone into more detail on placing composing of two or more people. Read morePublished on June 17, 2013 by Dean Brown
Love this book. We refer to it frequently. Has some great, practical information and picture ideas that will work for any family. Not all weird and artsy...just everyday people!Published on January 14, 2013 by Amazon Customer
There are times the author is explaining a concept and there is a photo on that page that has nothing to do with the subject. Read morePublished on November 5, 2012 by Amazon Customer
This definitely did not seem like what it was supposed to be. I could get more information on line about family portraits than what the book offered. Very disappointed in it.Published on November 2, 2012 by gauche04
