This third volume in John Freeman's outstanding photographic instruction series, The Photographer's Guide to Landscapes, provides readers with authoritative advice on capturing the beauty of the physical world.
Here intermediate photographers can find information on an exhaustive range of topics, including expert guidance on creating interesting foregrounds, modifying backgrounds, developing panoramas, framing, working with multiple images, and utilizing black and white as an alternative to color. Over 250 images offer perspective on capturing specific types of landscapes--from skies and deserts to waterways and urban landscapes.
Find valuable advice on equipment: filters, lenses and film; technique: exposure, shutter usage; and editing: cropping and retouching. A section on digital toning even instructs readers on how to manipulate their work to create surreal imagery.
