The Natural Portrait

Today Craft & Vision releases Andrew S. Gibson’s comprehensive introduction to natural light portraiture – not surprisingly titled, The Natural Portrait.

Like some of our most recent books, this one’s big – it’s 240 pages and it covers a really wide gamut of topics from working with models, to lens choices, camera settings, light considerations, locations, posing, and post-processing. There are some beautiful case studies, from photographers like Tori Mercedes, for even more inspiration. If you want to photograph people, this is a great start. Combine this book with a study of some of the great portraitists of our century, put in your time finding your own vision and voice, and you’ll be well on your way.

Andrew’s The Natural Portrait is CAD $20, but until 11:59 PM (PST) on January 21 it’s yours for $15. You’ll find the discount code exclusively in Craft & Vision’s Contact Sheet, and you can get that, if you already do not, by signing up here - you’ll get the auto-responder inside the hour :)

Postcards from Lalibela

A week ago a group of us landed in Lalibela, Ethiopia about the same time as thousands of orthodox pilgrims were arriving from all over the country. We spent the last week in this high dusty town, walking among the centuries-old churches, all carved from the red rock on which this town sits, and waiting […]

2013 Retrospective

Kenya, January 2013. It’s the nature of time to go too quickly. Maybe that’s one of the reasons photography works so well for me: in making time one of our raw materials we pay more attention to it, honouring it down to thousandths of a second, more present, more perceptive. I wish paying more attention […]

Mirrorless to Africa

In a couple days I fly to Africa for almost 6 weeks. A week in Lalibela, Ethiopia, then to Kenya to spend 10 ten days in my beloved Maasai Mara to take my mother on her first safari, and then to Zanzibar for over two weeks to get my scuba certification and spend time with […]
