FAMILY –A small word with powerful meaning. Most of us trace the roots of our own personal identity back to our experience of being part of a family. The definition of what a family is can vary widely, but most family photography is anything but varied. We are used to the basic posing of a group, assembled and smiling like they never do in real life. This doesn't offer much visual or emotional impact. Create an image that captures the spirit of a family – as well as the individualism of the members–and you start at a magical place. That family now feels something when they view the photograph. In Tamara Lackey's Envisioning Family: A photographer's guide to making meaningful portraits of the modern family, Lackey reinvents the family photo for photographers. A top portrait photographer and sought-after speaker, Lackey reveals her techniques for getting each member of the family to feel at home in front of the camera–whether they're in her studio, at home, or on location. With this book you'll learn how to use backgrounds that complement your subjects, set up and shoot in-studio, light your images anywhere with straightforward lighting setups and diagrams, pose your subjects in a beautiful but natural way, nail your exposure, and create meaningful family portraits that leave everyone feeling and looking their honest best. For professional portrait photographers looking to inject some new vitality into their work or aspiring family photographers who would like to take more authentic images, this guide will help capture the modern family.

Master the Photoshop techniques used by professionals to create captivating composites, special effects, and more! The Photoshop Workbook reveals the creative skills that photographer and retoucher Glyn Dewis uses for his global clients. In this guide you will learn not only his step-by-step Photoshop techniques, but how and when to apply them so that you, too, can take your images to a whole new level. Glyn starts by covering the individual Photoshop skills that are the essential building blocks of his process: mastering selections and cutouts; dodging and burning and using the “power of gray” for composites; applying lighting effects; creating special effects; and turning day into night using a nondestructive workflow. It's one thing to learn the techniques, but to master them you need to understand when to apply them and in what order. In the second part of the book, Glyn brings everything together with his real-world projects. He covers six complete, start-to-finish projects–including all the images for you to download and follow along–that show you how to apply the techniques to a variety of scenarios.
