I remember first delving into the world of photography and wondering what “aperture” was and how could a “wide aperture” be f/1.4 and a “narrow aperture” be f/16 – when the numbers seem to contradict their name?

Or why would I shoot manual – I’d just be adjusting the settings all the time, right?

If you’re in that spot, do not fear. Enter…

“The Beginner’s Guide to Portrait Photography”, an eBook by Lauren Hope which offers wonderfully helpful information which you can apply to improve and excel in photography.

Although this book was not available when I started learning about photography (as much as I wish it was), it is available now as a most valuable tool for all of you who are interested in portrait photography (even if it’s just a hobby!).

A snippet from the foreword, which Lauren so graciously gave me the opportunity to write:

[Lauren] covers the basics from the technical side of camera functions, to helping your subjects feel comfortable and relaxed, to making the most of your surroundings for captivating and engaging portraits… read more.

    Bought it. Read it. Loved it.

    I have been doing portrait photography for almost 2 years now, but this little book definitely confirmed some things I thought I knew and expanded my knowledge on other topics. Simple and easy to understand.

    That looks like a fabulous book. I don’t have money till after the sale is over,,…but I’ll definitely bookmark this, because I”m always forgetting which aperture is best for which settings :) :) Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

    I read this book 7 years ago and STILL recommend it to other people. I actually found this article trying to find it for someone again. This book gave me the foundations I needed in technicality to help me build my creative skills. Now, I’m running a photography and web design business as a stay-at-home-mom. Forever thankful
