No one likes to admit it, but photographers often reach a plateau where they feel like they've reached their creative limit. Adding the right prop to a portrait setup can elevate every aspect of the image-easing the posing process, inspiring more interesting lighting, and engaging viewers in a more personalized story about the subject. In this book, Tracy Dorr shows you how to make the most of props, making savvy choices for individual and group portraits created in the studio or on location. Packed with inspirational techniques and images from ten contributing photographers (among them, Andrea Crabb, Ashley Warren, Aileen Treadwell, and Mimika Cooney), this book will inspire you to create more evocative images of any subject-from infants to engaged couples-and enhance your brand through the effective use of props.
