"In our new book, Expressive Photography: A Shutter Sisters' Guide to Shooting from the Heart, we introduce another approach to portraiture: focusing on the details. Although often overlooked, the small gestures and subtle nuances of your subject often can tell you more about them than any headshot ever could."-Digital Photo Magazine
"Ten authors, collectively known as the Shutter Sisters, successfully parlay their blog (shuttersisters.com) into an analogous print format, which is no small feat! Edited by Clark-a professional photographer and founder of the Sisters-the book is unusual among photography guides because it is far more concerned with questions of why than with lengthy explanations of how. The advice presented in this approachable guide addresses primarily issues of creativity, inspiration, and meaning for photographers in a way that many will find helpful. It is likely to appeal most to photographers less enamored by technological gadgetry and to busy young parents."-Library Journal
