    I am growing tired of reading books that starts on steps one and talks about the main principles.. Could anyone recommend me some great books? I just read Gregory Heisler: 50 Portraits, great book.


    Haven't really introduced me on the forum yet, here we go. I am Eskil - a photographer from Norway. I have started loving my 4/3(EM-1) camera more and more lately. Taking it with me everywhere, the size is dreamy like! You can follow my work at and

    Hi there,

    If you'd read another one about portraits (more or less), I can suggest Train your gaze by Roswell Angier.

    How's 50 portraits? I've been thinking about getting one for some time already...

    Welcome here btw!

    I'm currently reading 50 Portraits myself. If you like that sort of book, I'd recommend Joe McNally's books, particularly The Moment It Clicks and Hotshoe Diaries which talk about a number of Joe's photos and how and why they were shot the way they were.

    Zack Arias's Photography Q&A is an interesting mix of topics also, or you might like Secrets of Great Portrait Photography: Photographs of the Famous and Infamous from Brian Smith.
