Karen's lesson is a great tutorial for amateurs wanting to take portraits. The focus is on children but alot of her trips translates to portraits for adults as well. You learn about lighting, equipments, and authenticity. Great lesson!

Not just meant for photographing kids, this video is also for those who want to learn how to shoot better in general. I like what she says about natural versus artificial light because it's cheaper for one, and two, it has so much more appeal to me. I'm in the process of selecting a new digital camera to shoot with. I'd love to see a series of videos that details the different models for both consumer and professional buyers in the photography field.
