In this book, Elizabeth and Trey present 60 of their favorite and most diverse family portraits, showing you the art and technique of creating highly salable portraits. With every captivating image, you'll learn how the Homans masterfully orchestrated the technical and artistic aspects of the portrait, from the location or backdrop selection, to the overall compositional qualities, to the arrangement of the group in the scene, to the individual poses. You'll also learn the strategies Elizabeth and Trey used to create natural poses that contribute to the feel of the portrait and will learn how the lighting (studio light, existing light, and natural light) was harnessed to create a polished, professional portrait. Perhaps one of the big challenges of photographing families is that no family grouping or family dynamic is the same. This book will arm you with the tools you need to work with the smallest to largest groupings, including a wide range of subjects, from newborns to the elderly.
