Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone had any links to some decent online reading material about portrait photography? The vast majority that I've found are a bit on the light side and only deal with basic concepts like dof, rule of thirds etc that I'm already familiar with. I was hopeing to find something a bit more in depth. Just looking to improve my shots as it's an area I'm pretty weak on
The sample photos are old, but the body positioning and posing tips are classic;and by "classic", I mean that some of these ideas about how to pose people date back to the ancient times, when the poses were done in sculpture form. The sections on camera height and placement of the camera are just as valuable today as they were when these lessons were first written down. Pay great attention to how the height of the camera tremendously impacts a portrait.

Thanks guys, those look exactly the kind of things I'm looking for! Should keep me busy for the next few days!
