Mastering Landscape Photography
Landscape photography can be a solitary experience, but award-winning landscape photographer David Taylor believes creativity requires a certain amount of peaceful contemplation to flourish. What skills or requirements, therefore, does a successful landscape photographer need? An ability to work well in cold or wet conditions is one that springs to immediately to mind, but a landscape photographer also has to understand how the weather and the seasons affect the landscape. Navigational skills are useful to find potential subjects. Above all, empathy for the natural world is a prerequisite. Beginning with a comprehensive guide to the choice of camera, lenses and other equipment and accessories, Taylor goes on to discuss the fundamentals of exposure (aperture, shutter speed, ISO, dynamic range) and an appreciation of the effects of light on the landscape at various times of the day and in all types of weather.
