A Quick Change of Gears To Portrait Photography

Over the weekend, I just read this great tutorial over at PPMag.com. The article was entitled, "Portrait Lighting Tutorial: Character Study" [link ]by Don Chick, a very talented photographer from New Hampshire.

I have to say, Don's article is well written and very well illustrated. He gives you the low-down on lighting set-up and a down to earth discussion on how he produced the five images included in the article. Spend some time with Don's article, print it out and file it away - very good stuff. Wait, there's more.

Check out Don's other three articles too - all well worth the read:

Lighting for Impact [link ]
Measuring and Adjusting for Light Falloff [link ]
Light: Learn to See [link ]

Hey gang, that's it for me today. But remember, two things happening tomorrow. Number 1- I'm doing my Webinar entitled, "25 Tips, Suggestions, and Just Plain Good Ideas For Building Your Business" over at Marathon Press [info & registration link.] Hope to see you there where you can ask those burning questions and get ideas on improving your sales.

Number 2 - Be sure to tune in tomorrow for my conversation with Jeff Revell of worldwide PhotoWalkPro fame. Jeff is the guy who inspired Scott Kelby to put together Scott's upcoming Worldwide Photowalk this coming weekend. It's a good listen, so until tomorrow, keep you pixels smilin', and I see you for Podcast Wednesday! -David

  1. David,

    Thanks for the great link. I hope your readers enjoy the Don Chick articles. He's not only a good photographer, he's a great guy.

    Could you do us a favor and fix the PPAMag.com reference in your first paragraph to read PPmag.com? We'd hate to have folks fix on an incorrect web address. The link itself is fine.

    Thanks so much for sharing your experience, knowledge and passion for photography.
