Those seeking to capture the splendor and drama of the Earth will find inspiration in Photographing the Elements from Focal Press. This 192-page softcover book presents the elements earth, air, fire, and water in four separate chapters. Each element is explored in-depth through the authors' colorful imagery and practical advice on capturing a wide range of subjects. From clouds, deserts and seascapes to natural occurrences such as lightning, floods, ice storms, lava flows and beyond, the subject matter has been chosen so that readers will find something to shoot whether they wish to stay at home or venture out in search of exotic subjects. Additionally, the book's final sections on protecting data, image sharpening, printing, and selling photos serve as a handy technical resource.
