People Pictures: 30 Exercises for Creating Authentic Photographs

Book Description

Bestselling author/photographer Chris Orwig offers 30 photographic exercises to renew your passion for capturing the people in your world. This is not a traditional portrait photography book. The goal isn’t flattery, but connection and depth. Whether you are a student, busy parent, or seasoned pro photographer, these exercises provide an accessible framework for exploration and growth.
 
With titles like: Be Quiet, Turn the Camera Around, and the Fabric of Family, each exercise encourages you to have fun and experiment at your own pace. You will explore everything from street, lifestyle, candid, and environmental shots. The projects are small artistic endeavors meant to change how you see and the pictures that you make. All that’s required is a camera, an intrepid attitude, and some imagination.
