Ever wonder how landscape photographers manage to capture every detail in a panoramic shot of the Grand Canyon? Want to make a waterfall look like velvet? Or highlight the shafts of sunlight in your pictures of forests? All these answers and many more can be found in this definitive new guide to landscape photography—a must-have resource for amateur and experienced shutterbugs alike.

For additional guidance and inspiration, every picture shown in the book includes specific details on shutter speed, aperture settings, ISO settings, lenses, and types of cameras. Profiles of top landscape photographers provide more innovative tips for making your pictures unique.

Filled with practical information and step-by-step instruction, this 160-page volume will easily fit in a camera bag for handy reference in the field.
