Fashion and Lifestyle Photography is based on the talks Dixie Dixon, a Nikon Brand Ambassador, has given to crowds at major international trade shows. Expanding on the subject in the book, she reveals how to succeed in this exciting marketplace, covering key topics such as:
· Professional case studies
· Behind the scenes
· Lighting diagrams & gear
· How to build your career
From finding your vision, to building your dream team, this book will provide you with the essential gear and know-how to capture the looks of the media world that leap off the page or screen.
