Miss Aniela Natalie Dybisz

Natalie Dybisz AKA Miss Aniela is an amazing photographer. Her work has been viewed by millions online, exhibited in galleries and fairs worldwide, and she has been described as a “star” by both American Photo and Photoicon. She works with commercial clients, fashion shoots, and has a personal fine art portfolio. Her new book covers it all. In today’s episode we’ll ask her about her best pieces of advice, the featured photographers, how she feels about giving away her secrets, and more.

Creative Portrait Photography

This book is an amazing resource for anyone interested in portraiture, with a comprehensive guide to not only what is in each shot but WHY.  It includes Natalie’s creative process as well as showcases top portrait photographer’s work, “taking you on a behind the scenes journey from first concept to post processing.”

Edgy, evocative portraits and unique post-processing details make this the most creative, hip portrait book available. It goes beyond the technical aspects of lighting and posing (though they are well covered) and reveals how to capture the essence of your subject’s true inner self. Acclaimed photographer Natalie Dybisz offers advice on building trust, planning shoots, directing people, and using digital tools such as post-editing and compositing to create great portraits. An extensive showcase chapter presents several artists’ works and methods.Contributors: Brooke Shaden, Alex Stoddard, Peter Kemp, Susannah Benjamin, Kirsty Mitchell.

Random Tips

Having trouble cloning out fly away hairs on a complicated background? Duplicate your layer. On the bottom layer, use the liquify tool to shrink the head, which extends the background into the head (make sure to try and keep the background looking good and not warped around to much) . Now on top layer, use a mask to reveal the extended background, hiding the fly away hair.
