About this eBook

Conceptual Portraiture walks you through the concept, posing, lighting, and detailed Photoshop post production for several unique images. Rather than focus on lighting or Photoshop only, this book walks you through all aspects of the photo's creation. Included with each image is a detailed explanation of the shot's basic concept, posing, lighting diagram, EXIF information, step-by-step workflow, Photoshop layer diagram, screen shots, and descriptions of critical steps.

This gives the reader a complete guide on how each image was built from the ground up, as well as what was going on in the photographer's head. Scott has also included mistakes he made and how each was resolved in post production. Also featured is a full chapter devoted to his sharpening and detail techniques that give his image that additional zing. If you were looking for a book to take your portraits to the next level, your search is over! This book brings you a lot of tools, ideas, and real-world experiences to draw from now and into the future.

About the Author

Most of my work is now commercial photography and retouching as well as shooting fashion. I do corporate headshots as well as catalog and magazine work, but love the occasional commission for something much more artistic. Teaching others is something I enjoy doing via workshops, speaking engagements, or traveling to shoots as often as possible. I also do themed shoots, workshops on lighting, posing, and post production seminars that are open to the public at my studio near Milwaukee, WI. I love passing on my knowledge to those who are now facing similar frustrations with the technical aspects of this awesome artistic outlet.

About Trey Ratcliff

Trey RatcliffTrey Ratcliff is a photographer, artist, writer and adventurer. Each day, Trey posts a new photo to his website StuckInCustoms.com, which receives over half a million monthly page views. Trey has over 10 million social media followers via , Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter.

Trey is best known as a pioneer in HDR photography. Chris Anderson from TED called Trey a "pioneer of HDR photography." HDR stands for High Dynamic Range, a technique whereby multiple levels of light are captured for a particular scene and then combined into a single photograph. The resulting images are richly detailed and more closely resemble what you recall of the scene in your mind.

Trey's photo, Fourth on Lake Austin, was the first HDR photograph to hang in the Smithsonian. He has been featured on ABC, NBC, CBS, FOXand the BBC, and his photos have accumulated about 1 billion views. His best-selling book, "A World in HDR" sold out on Amazon in the US, UK, Canada, and Australia. Using a unique teaching style based on curiosity and discovery, Trey has taught hundreds of thousands of people the secrets to his photography techniques.

Trey grew up blind in one eye, which changed the way he has come to experience and visually map the world. This, combined with his degree in computer science and math, has shaped his unique, algorithm-like, approach to capturing a scene that evokes more palpable memories.

Trey is also a successful entrepreneur. His endeavors include popular iOS and Android apps such as 100CamerasIn1, Stuck On Earth and Photo Voyages. In addition he launched Flatbooks.com, which is a rapidly growing eBook publisher.
