A beginners guide to portrait and wedding posing

Zeltsman Approach to Traditional Classic Portraiture
I found this resource which for any beginner to photography will be invaluable for years to come.

Read it very carefully and at least twice, even the chapter which was written with film and a wet darkroom is relevant.

This really is a gem and nearly is lost. I would strongly suggest you copy and paste each page in word doc or whatever you use to make a permenant copy because if the web site above shuts down this book is gone for ever.

Zeltsman Apporach to Traditionla Classic Portraiture

edit, I have made a word and pdf copy which I have put in dropbox .

try this link below .to download , Please pass this old mans record of his life work on it should really not be allowed to disappear

https://www.dropbox.com/s/55727ttlf9c3jtl/The%20Zeltsman%20Approach%20to%20T...ortraiture.pdf

If you like it please give me a like so I know how useful it has been doing this.

if you send me your email I can send you a link.
Just a quick thing though if we share our email, you might as well email the pdf copy. Can you pm me the dropbox link. Please...

I would really appreciate it - I was myself ABOUT to create a pdf for myself.
