Face to Face: Rick Sammon’s Complete Guide to Photographing People

Rick Sammon's Complete Guide to Photographing People

This is the latest photography book from O’Reilly. Face to Face: Rick Sammon’s Complete Guide to Photographing People is a beautifully illustrated book from the master travel photographer.

The new book offers proven techniques and tips you need for photographing people here and abroad, from different cultures, young and old.

“In this book, the book I’ve dreamed about writing for years, I share some behind-the-scenes stories,” explains Sammon. “You’ll learn how to photograph people in low light and in bright light, with a flash and without a flash. You’ll see how reflectors and diffusers can turn a snapshot into a great shot. You’ll understand the difference between an environmental portrait (a picture of the person in his or her environment) and a portrait–and the difference between taking and making a picture.”

Sammon’s new book comes stocked with his extraordinary images of people from around the world, including Papua New Guinea, Namibia, Cuba, Mongolia, and Bhutan. He also shares invaluable advice for taking photos of men, women, and children from different cultures.
