Reading the Landscape, by Peter Watson is an elegant book from the Photographer's Institute Press about interpreting and capturing landscapes with your unique vision. In essence, Watson speaks to the fact that how you see the subject in front of you determines how it's recorded, in this case, in the digital realm. Watson advocates for slowing yourself down before even clicking the shutter, using a scientific approach that also includes patience, a meticulous eye, and "painting with light". Reading the Landscape is filled with the author's own well-constructed and visually stunning images and explanations of how all the elements taken for granted in our day-to-day lives are the very things that create the lines, shapes, colors, and textures of an engaging image.
