Summary

Practical instruction for beginning through intermediate photographers. Perhaps the most common motivation behind the novice's study of photography is to be able to capture the beauty of the natural world, and here are the fundamentals: an introduction to understanding light; primers on equipment, film, exposure, gear, storage, and display; in-depth how-to advice on the most popular outdoor subjects landscapes, close-ups, and wildlife including invaluable pointers on the challenges presented by natural conditions; and full coverage of a subject ignored by other books the outdoor photography of people. In stunning full colour that illustrates proper technique, and with helpful quick hints throughout, this is the most accessible guide to the subject thorough enough for the aspiring professional, but sufficiently practical for even the casual amateur.
