Poor Excuse for a Portrait Instruction Book Feb 7, 2007
I bought this book and after reading it, I kept wondering what it was about it that bothered me. It finally occured to me that nearly every single picture in this book shows beautiful people in their early to mid twenties. There are only a handful of people who are any older. What good is this to anyone who is taking portraits of real people? It's easy to make a good portrait of attractive young people. The real challenge is to make a nice portrait of someone who is older. That's where real talent shows through. So unless you plan on only photographing beautiful young people, it's best to pass this one by.
