How to Photograph People by Michael Busselle and David Wilson

One of the books that I purchased was The Perfect Portrait Guide: How to Photograph People by Michael Busselle and David Wilson. Portrait photography has always been the main focus of my own photography and so I was keen to read this book (recommended by a reader of this site). While there are a lot of photography books out there with a very technical approach – The Perfect Portrait Guide is much more practical in it’s approach and uses A LOT of case studies as the basis for it’s teaching on portrait photography – this in my mind makes it a very useful book.

Posing people for powerful portrait photography is tricky, especially when you want that natural look. If you have photographed people before, you will know that some tend to lock up when a camera is pointed at them. They become stiff, their expressions change and they are unsure where to look. Their hands show their nervousness, and they often become fidgety and uncomfortable.

This is a really terrible book that looks at snapshots of a few photographers and then goes back over them describing why they were good. It had very, very little to do with thinking or planning about how to pose a person, or what kind of light to put them in to create a certain mood. I do not recommend this to even a beginner photographer.

Outstanding book. The edition that I have may seem dated but the fact that the notes refer to film are irrelevant. It's framing the subject, lighting, setting the mode at ease... The descriptions of shots are often accompanied by diagrams with some "what if..." scenarios. Great book.

All this book does and show pictures and describe what the photography was thinking when they took the photo. It gives little to no technical details (beyond what the camera settings were). All of the photos are also taken with film cameras so the "meta data", if you will, is based on film and what type was used, etc. Not for modern day pro or advanced amateur photographers. Steer clear.

This is a dream book for experienced amateur portrait photographer. The book discussed almost every elements of creating great looking portraits. The examples are great. Description of behind the scene thought are provided along with illustration of lighting diagram especially if artificial lighting setup is used. You will also find useful no-nonsense tips in almost every page.

All photos in this book are shot by film SLR camera. The camera type, film and lens type is provided but no aperture / shutter speed setting. However, it does not mean that digital SLR camera users won't get advantage of the information. Film / digital photography shares the same concept anyway.

So.. It is highly recommended for aspiring portrait shooters. Solid material for experienced photographer that want to move one step closer to become expert in portrait photography.

For beginner, you might want to strengthen your basic photography knowledge first, especially about photography equipments and terms. Knowledge about lighting are very helpful as well.

note: the design and layout are very artistic :)

This book is exactly what I was looking for when searching the shelves for a good portrait photography how-to. I am an ameteur photographer with a digital slr camera and wanted something to help me with lighting, lens and filter choices for various scenarios to help me expand on the quality of my portrait photography. The primary thing I was looking for when choosing a book was that it had to be a photographic guide (not just a bunch of text) and contain lots of beautiful and inspiring pictures.

This book definitely delivers. The book contains page after page of gorgeous, glossy full-color photos, with brief how-tos for each.

As far as the complexity of the book: I believe both beginners and amateurs can get a lot out of this book. I think it is best if one has a basic knack for composition, but even if you don't you can get some great ideas here. The books is very easy to understand, shows lots of examples in different lighting scenarios, and is beautiful just to peruse and get ideas for your own photography.

I absolutely love it and would most definitely purchase it again. In fact, I am going to give a copy as a gift to my father when he gets his digital slr next month.

This is an excellent book for all levels. Every single page of it contains at least one wonderful photograph with very useful "creative" and "technical" comments on what was the artistic intention of the author and how the picture was done technically including the type of lens, film, lighting, etc. Many of the "technical" comments also include schematic view of the scene and the sources of lighting. I have read many similar books on this subject and consider this one to be the best. Honestly, I was looking for such a book for very long time. The photos in the book are depicted with great taste and each represents a unique approach and vision in portrait photography.

I thought this book was excellent. It is very concise and to the point. The photography is superb and it tells you exactly how each shot was composed and what equipment was used. The book is smaller than most but I believe this is because it does away with the "fluff" and simply sticks to the essentials.
