This book is bursting with so much knowledge that every photographer, from beginner level up to those who've taken this sort of imagery before, will find useful.

As well as looking at the obvious topics such as camera equipment, lighting, setting up a shoot etc. Tamara begins by looking at what a family means/is and shares her experiences too. Some, like myself, may find this a slightly odd way to begin a photography title but I'm sure they'll be others out there who enjoy reading this background information and may even find it useful.

Back to photography, the book is bursting with examples, some which sit nicely along side the advice on offer, acting as visual props that further add to the explanations given in the text. Others are there as just stand-alone shots which are inspirational and interesting to look at.

The book has an interesting narrative that's written in first person and has an almost story-book quality to it which makes it easy to be drawn in to. Before you know it you'll have read many pages without even realising it!

If you're looking for a book that gives you friendly, easy to understand advice on how you can shoot better portraits, make sure you have a look at this title.
