In The Creative Portrait, photographer and author Nick Fancher walks you through a plethora of ideas and techniques for making such creative work. Known for imagery that is bold, colorful, expressive, and widely varied, Nick has built a career by going against the grain. In The Creative Portrait, Nick will help you go beyond the conventional approach and explore the endless possibilities that come with intentionally breaking the rules. Throughout the book, Nick includes behind-the-scenes photos and diagrams of his shoots, as well as Lightroom post-processing techniques so you can follow along. He also includes over a dozen creative prompts to actively push you to go beyond your own comfort zone in your photography in order to create compelling portraiture. In The Creative Portrait, Nick will teach you all about: The gear he uses, and his overall approach to shooting, why it' s so important to practice photographing paper, plastic, and plants, multiple long exposure techniques for creating unique and expressive images, blocking, directing, and concentrating light with cookies, flags, gobos, and snoots, shooting through glass for numerous creative effects, how he employs smoke, mirrors, and projectors in his work, and much more!
