Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From grand vistas to intimate woodland glades, landscapes are favorite photography subjects. Too often, however, photographers' visual experiences of the majestic outdoors aren't reflected in the pictures they make. Why? Because many people overlook the importance of good technique, believing that exotic locations and expensive lenses create fantastic pictures. As John Shaw, the famous nature photographer and best-selling author, demonstrates in this definitive new book, expertise as a landscape photographer comes from mastering technique and developing a personal response to nature, not from having a large budget for travel and equipment.

John Shaw's Landscape Photography teaches that producing good photographs means learning how to control the tools of photography: camera equipment, lenses, film, light, and exposure. The goal Shaw proposes is to make technical proficiency second nature, so it doesn't intrude when it is take to compose great pictures. With lessons fully illustrated by 195 color photographs, including many before-and-after sequences, this beautiful book also covers the basics of photographic design and composition that characterize brilliant portraits of the landscape.

Synopsis:

An acclaimed nature photographer teaches that producing good photos means knowing how to control the tools of photography: camera equipment, lenses, film, light, and exposure. This guide covers the basics of photography and discusses the common problems and solutions in landscape work. 190 full-color illustrations.
