But amongst the stardom she’s a very sharing person and holds nothing back in teaching you her exact approach to portrait photography.
  • Because it’s packed with real-world advice. Gina spends just as much time taking photo’s as she does teaching, so the advice you’ll experience through the books it’s directly from a Portrait practitioner whose livelihood depends on capturing amazing portraits.

  • Is this just for DSLR Owners? – You don’t need to have to own a DSLR but it will help.  There is lots of information  about the principles of light, lighting set-up etc, so long as people are willing to go manual and play with aperture settings you’ll be fine. That said, Gina’s style is achieved using specific lenses and settings, so you will need a DSLR if you want to get EXACTLY the same depth of field
