Francis Tan, photographer.

“I have always been captivated by your portraits and wondered how on earth did you manage to get such beautiful pictures. This ebook finally reveals the secrets of your skills which I am sure you must have spent long hours to acquire and to master.

This ebook is written in a very easy to understand manner and the steps taught by you are really easy to follow. I have tried them out myself and it’s amazing how easy it is to enhance the quality of a portrait using your suggested workflow.

The 60 or so photographs which you have exhibited in your ebook are so stunning that by themselves they would have made this ebook a great book on portraiture photography, better than any that I have seen on the shelves of Kinokuniya or Borders.

This is really great.”

Noordin, photographer.

“It’s awesome! I love it. It’s well thought out and well written. I love the illustration through the photoshop pages of each step because when I started Photoshop this was the most difficult part. Well done Doc. I can sense that it’s a labour of love!”
