My new book Creative Portraits: Digital Photography Tips & Techniques is now shipping. Amazon will get it to you anywhere, even if you don’t plan to read it like Katie Rose while sitting on top of an egg.

It’s a family tradition to photograph Katie Rose with our new books as they come in. Some other images:

Here’s the description from the back cover of Creative Portraits:

Taking portraits of men, women, and children is a passionate undertaking. By capturing a person through a photo, you can explore the subject’s character.

This book aims squarely at the heart and soul of portrait photography and shows you how to create meaningful and compelling images. Each photo is taken from Davis’s personal collection and is accompanied by an explanation of how and why he made it. Composition, lighting, exposure, and camera technique are all discussed, taking you beyond the basics.

Still, the best way to craft memorable, lively, and stunning portraits is sometimes to break the rules. Davis also demonstrates how to do this in a way that is both informative and inspiring. He encourages you to define and develop your own photographic style by shooting creative, unique images. You’ll be moved to try new techniques, empowering you to truly define someone with a photograph.

  • Capture emotion to create a compelling image
  • Learn about clothing, hair, and make-up
  • Choose the right lens and shutter speed
  • Utilize the best lighting techniques
  • Have fun photographing kids
  • Retouch your images and add special effects

Kate Rose says, “Order Creative Portraits: Digital Photography Tips & Techniques from Amazon today!”
