    I was looking for a good book on portraiture. I know all about Manual settings and stuff, so I'm looking for a book that skips all that.
    I'm looking for some kind of book that would have tricks with lighting, seeing creatively (I have the Bryan Paterson book already), just things that will help me really make my portraits breathtaking. I'm sick of taking just a plain old portrait.

    Does anyone have an recommendations?
    Oh, my main subjects are usually kids and families. Thanks!
