From the inside cover flap:
Portraits explains the techniques behind a successful portrait shot. It will invariably depend on the lighting methods employed which in turn depend on the nature of the photograph -- is it a family portrait, a character shot, an executive study? The photograph must capture the subject's significance, whether it is the naivety of a child, the importance of a self-made man or the well-known personality of a celebrity. In each case, the lighting setup is fundamental to achieving the right effects.
Looking at 62 first-class photographs, Portraits examines the studio portraiture such as ensuring the subject is lit independently from the background, incorporating props without giving them prominence, and maintaining a working composition for groups. Hicks and Schultz explain the many effects possible, and offer hints as to how problems might arise, together with fool-proof ways of solving them.
