Hollywood Portraits, Classic Shots And How To Take Them. By Roger Hicks and Christopher Nisperos, photographs from The Kobal Collection. ISBN: 1-85585-787-1.
My last book that I read was about pictures from this collection and this book has taken a selection of photographs from the Kobal Collection of the 1920’s, 1930’s 1940’s and 1950’s and illustrated them with a suggestion of how the photos were likely to have been made with possible lighting-plots and camera-angels. A great book to have for anyone interested in portraiture and ambitious to mimic the Hollywood style. This book includes sketches indicating where the lights were set in relation to model and camera. A photographers must have book.
