The Landscape Photography Field Guide
Review Date : Thu, 12 Jul 2012
One of a series of field guides designed to fit into a camera bag, this one will have perhaps the widest appeal.
Author: Carl Heilman II
Landscape photography is a game of patience, so there should be plenty of time to flick through the pages for help or ideas while you're sitting around waiting for that break in the clouds. Tabbed at the page edges for easy navigation, the book is divided into sections on Equipment, Techniques, Shooting, Creative Effects and Editing, plus a small reference section. Heilman covers a wide range of topics, including composition, camera settings, the weather, panoramas, flash, creative blur and much more. The images are of a very high standard and there are handy reference tables for complex subjects like Hyperfocal Distance and Multiple Exposures. A useful addition to any gadget bag.
