Let me start by saying I love Dan's books and his email tips. Everything is written without a shred of photo snobbery and you can apply what you learn immediately. Stunning Portrait Photography continues in that very vein. Wonderful information that can be applied almost as soon as you finish reading it. Why four stars, when I read it on my kindle this weekend, the photographs that accompany the text loose a little impact when viewed in e-ink. Those of you with a kindle fire or ipad are certain to have a 5 star experience.

About 12 years ago, my family and I had a portrait photography business. This was before digital - wow, it seems like eons ago! I still learned so much from this book even though I thought "I knew it all" - and it reminded me of what I had forgotten! Very thorough explanations, very down to earth and easy for anyone to read this and go out and shoot portraits immediately after reading. Lighting is the hardest thing to master, but the tips in this great book will make anyone an expert!

I highly recommend this book and I can't wait to read all of the books in the series!

This is the first time I write a review after hundreds of purchases on Amazon, simply I feel I obliged to do so to warn people. I bought this book because of review I read for this product.
In the end, it's a disappointing experience. This book doesn't feel like books that I bought before, even the Kindle format ones, especially if this compared to photography books that I bought before.. Maybe because formatting.. I don't know for sure.
If you have been in Internet Marketing, you must know this jargon. Find topics that you are familiar with, or you know well, write it into a report or ebook, and then sell it in the internet. Unfortunately this book fits into that description.
Cons:
- Only basic principles of posing and lighting. No further explanation, example of practice and pictures before and after applying the technique, no lighting diagram, etc. Positioning of lighting in portrait is very important, yet there is now further explanation and diagram on how to place flash/light to achieve Rembrandt lighting for example. Fortunately, I can find this explanation and information in the internet, of course for free. Lighting part of this book is a joke.

- Photography book will almost always have the Exif data on the pictures shown in the book. Speed, F stop, ISO, etc so that we can try to reproduce the setting, in the hope to reproduce the effect shown in the picture. This books simply doesn't have it. At all. I suspect it just uses stock photos? Maybe I am wrong.

If I can put negative star I would be happy to...

Lots of information packed into a quick easy read. I would like to see some before and after shots showing the techniques being taught. Visual examples of lighting equipment (as well as alternate lighting) and how to set it up would be nice too. Overall it is a good book and I would recommend it to beginners and those who need refresher courses.

This series is fantastic and this book is one of my favorites. Portrait lighting and posing are explained simply but using the information will improve your pictures tremendously. If you want quick improvement to your portraits without spending days reading, this is the book to get. I especially like that I can keep the information in my head while I'm shooting because the explanations are so clear and concise.

I was able to download this book onto my laptop with the Kindle app. I began reading it right away and found it incredibly easy to understand and follow. I found the information on posing the hands and arms particularly helpful. I have just begun to get into portrait photography and have had a few shootings, mostly with members from my church and their families. Although I've had some success I can tell from reading this book how much the information will improve my next shoot. I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone interested in portrait photography or even those who are already involved with portrait work.
The book is provoking in that it makes you want to go try these techniques immediately.

Starts out with an offer for a free booklet.
Interesting take on posing all the body even if they aren't going to be in the shot.
Enjoy the color samples enclosed to point out what's going on.
Other works by the author are highlighted at the end.

This guide is an absolute gem. It covers a wide range of topics, once absorbed and learned, will greatly improve every portrait I take. Rather than wonder why I have gotten lucky, I can consciously plan out methods to reliably achieve superior results. I've probably seen all these tips before, but here they are all conveniently illustrated and condensed into one volume.
