Portrait & Candid Photography
By Erin Manning
The secret to taking great "people pictures" is to observe your subjects, connect with them, and use your camera to its best advantage. Here's how to work with lighting, location, angle, composition, physical characteristics, environment, and countless other variables, including the unique challenges of photographing babies, group activities, and action. Learn to capture facial expressions, tell a story with a series of candids, add interest to large-group shots, and more. Apply these techniques and watch your subjects come to life.
